Director: Jason Fitzgerald
An amateur entomologist follows a self-proclaimed “alien” on a mountain expedition, desperate to immortalise his dead wife through the discovery of a new insect species.
SaMo Indie says:
The first of three films from Australia in this year’s lineup, The Insect and the Alien is a heartfelt and delicately nuanced story that uses comedy to tell a very human story about grief, loss and ultimately, acceptance. Writer / director Jason Fitzgerald evidences a stable directorial hand, giving the two leads (wonderfully portrayed by Christopher Sommers and Will Kelly) plenty of room to explore their respective roles. The result is a truly unique film that will leave you wanting for more.
