The Yarnmaker team is pleased to announce their latest film, Cough, received the Best Foreign Film award at the recent SoCal International Film Festival in Southern California, USA.
The Cough team were also nominated for two craft awards, Best Director for Jason Kempnich, and Best Cinematography for Graeme McMahon. This rounded out a very strong weekend for Cough in Southern California.
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.
