Yarnmaker is pleased to announce their latest film, Cough, received the "Best Sci-Fi Short" award at the recent 17th annual Indie Gathering film festival in the USA. Indie Gathering was Cough's world premiere, and also the production team's first award.
More information on Cough including upcoming screenings, and the film's trailer, can be found at the Cough website.
Cough stars Robert Coleby (Tracks, Terra Nova, The Marine) and Christopher Sommers (Predestination, Terra Nova, The Horseman), with Natalie Trent and Dan Eady. Written and directed by Jason Kempnich, it features moody cinematography by Graeme McMahon and evocative music by Davin Patterson.
Set a few years from today, Cough explores a dystopian future where a pandemic has forced governments worldwide to heavily curtail the movements of citizens for their own survival. In the rush to survive, civil liberties are forgotten. The film asks the question - how far is too far, and what if government wanted to keep their new power? Sometimes you have to fight to hold on to your civil liberties.
