The Price Of Freedom - Vignette
SHORT FILM (2.5 mins)
YOUNG INDEPENDENT FILM & TELEVISION AWARDS 2009
Nominee for "Best Film"

This 2.5 minute vignette of the film was cut for entry into short film festivals with a duration limit. In particular it was submitted to the Virgin Media Short Film Competition and The Young Independent Film & TV Awards and made it through to the final rounds in both competitions.

Set during the First World War, this is a story of a young father, who leaves his family to fight for his country. Over the course of the film he struggles to understand the purpose of war and futility of human sacrifice. The film uses the emotive literature of the Great War Poets, Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen, to tell his story.
