To Love is to sacrifice ourselves

A Mouth to Feed is a grim Australian fable set in the 1850’s. 

The film follows a father as he struggles to carry the carcass of a dead cow across miles and miles of perilous and harsh terrain, all to feed his daughter. 

The Father keeps his daughter hidden away from the world for her own safety, he is terrified of losing her. And so everyday he must travel excruciatingly long distances to where she is kept to keep her nourished. 

But as he gets older, he becomes weaker

We will watch the father through just one of his journeys, we will watch as he pushes his broken and worn out body beyond it’s limits and witness his mentality crumble under the pressure of his task and the dread of knowing that he can’t provide for his daughter forever.

This film is dirty, gory and strange but underneath it’s exterior is a story about family and the sacrifices we make to care and nurture for those we love.

We have an extremely talented team on board but we still need more support to ensure we do this production justice. 

The money raised in this campaign will go towards production costs including:

– Travel and accommodation costs.

– Camera and sound gear

– Production Design: to create an authentic 1850’s setting, costume and prop design

– Catering: to feed the mouths of our hungry cast and crew

– Hair/Makeup and Wardrobe.

– Film Festival Submissions.

Meet the team…
