Where The Mountains Grow (Short Film)

Terminally ill TOMMY is led by GAZ on a surreal adventure in search of where the mountains grow, making the most of what may be his last opportunity to finally do something out of the ordinary.

A witty and heart warming comedy that explores what it means to truly seize the day.

‘Where The Mountains Grow’ is a collaboration between Beartuza Theatre Company and Black Apron Entertainment. Following a successful theatre tour of the original production ‘Night Voices'(produced by Beartuza Theatre Company), our aim is to create a short film that embodies/encapsulates the spirit of this stage production.

The short film follows the journey of hospital patient Tommy, as a mysterious stranger enters the hospital ward and convinces him to embark upon a fantasy-filled adventure, in search of where the mountains grow.

Production completed in November 2018. Currently in Post.
