Things We Leave Behind 2009

16 mins United Kingdom Director. Andrew Brand

Forty-something Chris (Jonny Phillips) returns to his isolated childhood home after the death of his father. But as he sorts through the old man's things he begins to remember, and more than one bell starts ringing... A tale of grief and longing that swiftly turns into paranoia and dread, writer/director Andrew Brand's short film is moving, uncanny and terrifying.
