The film, produced by Jason Byrne and featuring eleven shorts written by Giula Sandler, will begin this limited engagement on November 4.
In Little Deaths, each story comments on and adds to the ones that came before and after. As a feature film, the story of the lonely tollbooth operator (Abe Forsythe) provides the thread that joins the interweaving tales. Whilst he imagines the love stories of those who pass through his toll gate, he discovers one of his own to explore and ultimately, the stories help guide him toward true love.
The shorts were directed by Ben Chessell, Sian Davies, Melanie Brunt, Giula Sandler, Chris Benz, Fin Edquist, Jarrah Gurrie, Genevieve Bailey, Geoff Hitchins, James Teh and Toby Angwin. The cast includes Magda Szubanski, Adam Zwar, Alexandra Schepisi, Abe Forsythe and even Animal Kingdom director David Michod.
