Film description: This visually stunning short film set in the rural wheat belt of Western Australia, provides a candid insight into the life of Ronan, a 14 yr old boy who's been bullied his whole life at school. This accurate & controversial portrayal of life for someone who has fallen victim to bullying and the repercussions which exist, is told by director A.J. Carter in a unique, exposition intensive format with very little use of dialogue. Ronan's Escape presents arbitrary scenes rather than traditional storytelling which provokes audiences into discussion and interpretation of the scenes on a more personal level while reflecting on their own experiences.Written by

He did a splendid job. in a film who, at the first sigh, is about bullyng and its consequences. after its end, you discover many other senses of a touching, bitter, special film about deep solitude. sure, the admirable cinematography, the camera , the story are real good points. but it is a film of an impressive craft to give an unique state to its public. sure, it could be defined as sadness or compassion or fury. but its name remains unknown. because it is result of great performance of a boy, a bird and a running competion. and the most significant memory is a field with a tree and the eyes of mother.so, one of short films who must see.
