From Where I'm Standing

Short Film (Full Length) – 2003


In this short a wandering flock of geese find harbour in a rainy day puddle. They give delight to Juliet, staring out the window of her state house until her axe-wielding neighbour approaches the birds with less sanguine intentions. She’s unimpressed when boyfriend Martin doesn’t act in order to avoid confrontation. When a family arrives looking for their pets, the neighbour shrugs off the enquiries, and it’s up to Martin to prove himself. Adapted from a story by Jo Sole, the Annalise Patterson-directed short was invited to Venice and Hof film festivals.

I’ve been watching telly all day. I’ve seen nothing, I don’t like geese anyway ... noisy buggers.
– Juliet’s disingenuous neighbour
