We have a sci-fi film for you this week: Dr Julia Reynolds' Shepherd tells the story of Eden, a sixteen-year-old girl struggling to survive in a dystopian future. When Eden (played by Olivia Reynolds, pictured above) comes across an old tourist map she has been dreaming about, she's faced with leaving the only life she knows to follow the map. Watch the teaser below, or watch the film on the big screen (complete with a live quartet playing the soundtrack) at its world premier at the Hamilton Garden's Festival, 15 February.
Dr Reynolds recently joined SAE Auckland as Film Lecturer. She has worked in television, music videos, TV commercials, funded short films, animations, international web content, as well as interactive and virtual reality. She holds a PhD in Film from AUT, and has taught at the University of Waikato and WINTEC Media Arts School.
