Dear Sister (FINALIST)


Country of Origin: USA

“Dear Sister” is a short film set in the countryside of historical England, following Eddie–a young farm boy, who feels dissatisfied with the role he was given in life. Through a whimsical lens of wild wonder, we peel back the layers of their subconscious, and it revealed to us who Eddie truly is inside.
