Director Statement

I had heard the story of my Great-Grandfather numerous times, but it was only on the last telling that I learnt of his “White-feather treatment”. I was immediately outraged at the injustice of such an incident and knew that I wanted to turn it into a short film.
The reality of making such a film with next to no budget was daunting to say the least, however I was overwhelmed by the number of people who believed in the story and offered their support. I hope all the cast, crew and supporters are as proud as I am of what we have managed to achieve.
