Steadfast

This is my graduating thesis film from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, completed in April 2014.

Farmer Shel is a hopeless rice farmer who lives for his family, he works tirelessly night and day to provide for them. One night, what approaches Shel may keep him from providing for them, perhaps for good.
