Space Tourist Films, the production company of Melbourne creative director Joseph Russell, has just dropped its official trailer for their eagerly anticipated film SILENT MAN.
This timely short film deals with the emotions, pain, anger, violence and reality of asylum seekers and refugees. Impactful in story, dark and disturbingly beautiful to look at, haunting in sound, SILENT MAN tells a story as only film can, in a way that will move the viewer across both sides of the fence and invoke a sense of urgency to a resolution for a dilemma which virtually no country on Earth is able to escape.
Powerful performances by the cast (of which I feature in a gripping scene) as well as brilliant direction by Joseph and execution from all the crew have resulted in what could very well be the short indie film of the year.
As we gear up for what will hopefully be a phenominally successful film festival circuit both across Australia and abroad, here is the official 90 second trailer of SILENT MAN for your viewing pleasure. I'd love to hear your thoughts of it!
