Hero image for Stray


Film (Trailer) – 2018

Director Dustin Feneley’s first feature is set in a wintry Central Otago landscape. It charts the relationship between a man on parole (Kieran Charnock from The Rehearsal and short Cub) and a woman just out of a psychiatric facility (Arta Dobroshi, from Belgian film Lorna’s Silence). A highly successful crowdfunding campaign raised $125,000 towards the film. Stray won the first of many awards (for actor Charnock) when it premiered at the 2018 Moscow International Film Festival. Critics found it "compelling and haunting" (The NZ Herald) and "indelibly beautiful" (Stuff).

[Dustin] Feneley's direction is uncompromising in its control, subtlety and precision — reflecting a project that, even in the bleakest and most difficult of financial circumstances, refused to compromise.
– NZ Herald reviewer Tom Augustine in a five star review of Stray, 19 July 2018
