Milica Zec,  USA 2016 6'

Producer: Winslow Turner Porter III
Film Presentation:
Giant is a virtual-reality short about a family trying to survive in an active war zone. The story draws from the director’s personal experience, growing up in war-torn Serbia. The film evolves around an American family: two parents and their six-year-old daughter. They hide in their basement as a fury of bombs approaches outside. To protect their daughter from understanding the imminent danger they face, the parents fabricate a tale about a giant who wants to play with her and whose footsteps are the loud explosions they hear approaching.
