AS HE LAY FALLING short film

0


Georgios has travelled to Scotland from Greece, settling on a peninsula at the edge of the remote Scottish Highlands. A ghost in a foreign land, he digs peat for food and board on Bronte’s rundown croft – his unwelcome presence hanging darkly over her partner William, an English incomer. Trapped within a forced intimacy, lost from a life he left behind, Georgios discovers the stark difference between choosing to disappear and losing yourself completely.

As He Lay Falling premiered in competition for the Best Short Film Award at the 68th Edinburgh International Film Festival, received Special Mentions at the 11th Reykjavik International Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival of Cyprus, and won the Directors Jury Award at the 16th International Short Film Festival of Soria. Having screened at over 25 international festivals it continues to screen worldwide and is being developed into a feature film by Middlefish Films, Homemade Films and Only Son, supported by the Scottish Film Talent Network with the assistance of Creative Scotland and the BFI NET.WORK.
