Production[edit | edit source]
It was the second feature film from Paul Middleditch, who was one of the leading TV commercial directors in Australia.
Director Paul Middleditch lived with the three main actors for a number of months working on the screenplay. “I wanted to create a work that was a direct response to the emotional state I was in at the time,” he says. “I wanted to construct three truthful portraits of people dealing with death in their lives in radically different ways and to create an environment in which they could expose their real lives before the camera.”
The film was shot over five days. 
Release[edit | edit source]
The film screened at the Sydney Film Festival and the Melbourne International Film Festival.
