The Hunter is a silent folk horror, psycho-drama short film about manhood and rites of passage.
In the late 18th century a father drags his son out on a stag hunt, deep within an ancient and unforgiving woodland. As a dark force in the woods draws a rift between them, their inner desires lead them both towards a wicked fate.
2017's The Hunter was an effort to pay homage to the underrepresented genre of 'folk-horror', as well as a deep interest in ideas of mythic symbolism and ritual.
