Work Overview

Black Berries is a short film produced at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in 2003. The film explores themes of friendship and loss through a pensive portrayal of the lives of two girls, Candy and Lao. The music to this film is spacious in its support of the themes of loss and confusion, with overtones of Irish and Asian music relating to the differing heritage of the two main characters.
