SHORT FOCUS 2019: Cry [Guy Wilson, UK, 2018]

Cry takes its viewers on an emotionally fraught and, at times, highly uncomfortable journey through the lives of a young couple, grieving for their child taken by stillbirth. The short lurches between startling, euphoric fantasy moments and those of sickening nightmare. As the viewer follows the traumatic and rocky emotional recovery of the father, Andrew, the viewer is presented with a film that has a technical approach, which is both stark and bold.
