The short film Prequel’87 has been completed, and a cast and crew viewing will be held on 10 May.
Prequel (16mins) tells the story of young mother Jean Bracewell whose daughter is knocked over on a pedestrian crossing in the small township of Hazelwood. Jean begins a friendship with the priest who brings the girl home. But her life is turned upside down when a car crash claims the lives of her husband Stan and her husband’s sleazy boss Nixon.
Prequel sets the scene for a full length feature, It’s Not What Happens, which will be filmed later this year.
