We have Bellbird for our video slot this week. Co-produced by Catherine Fitzgerald and starring Rachel House, it's the feature film debut of Hamish Bennett, who wrote and directed. Set over four seasons on a humble Northland dairy farm, Bellbird is the story of a dairy farmer struggling to cope with the sudden death of his beloved wife, and the gradual bond he builds with his gentle only son and the local community. The film will have its world premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, where it has been selected to participate in the official competition.
