FUN CITY

11 minute short film  //  Arri Alexa  //  1.85 : 1  //  colour


Sometimes to take a step forward, we have to take a step back. 

When a divorced fun-park attendant fails to speak to his young son on his birthday, he takes his frustrations out on a co-worker,
discovering that anger is a limp substitute for a changed perspective.
