Small Town Folk director Chris R. Wright’s upcoming short film The Water Boatman explores the drama surrounding the death of a relationship. However, instead of a rom-com, Wright is giving us something a bit more surreal. In fact, he describes the flick as “Don’t Look Now meets The Shining… via Mulholland Drive.” It’s a bold statement, but the guy certainly knows how to get our attention.
Here’s a short synopsis to help set the mood:
After his first day in a new job, Neil, a florist, returns home to find his girlfriend acting strange. They’ve not long moved in together and she hasn’t been well. But tonight things take an unexpected turn.
