The Winter Boy
A mother tries to comfort her grieving son, but on each attempt her son’s silence becomes more and more deafening. An outing to the local aquarium places further strain on their troubled relationship - until her son finds a reason to let his mother in again.
Kylie Meehan’s script of The Winter Boy is evocative. The story of a family locked in sorrow cut off from the world around them is brought to life in this film through the strong direction of Rachel House. Shot in the National Aquarium of New Zealand in Napier the use of colour and filters heightens the emotion of the film.
