Bound (Short)

Poster for Bound (Short)

When a mysterious group of workers appear at his brother’s sawmill, a struggling shopkeeper must face a troubling decision.

Drawn from a true Irish story, Halifax filmmaker Daniel Boos has created a powerful short film packed with as much tension as humanity. Set against the desolate landscape of rural Nova Scotia, and focusing on the exploitation of migrants and foreign labour, this is a story of empathy, brotherhood and the bonds that constrain and compel us to act on our conscience.

Screening presented with support from the Fundy Film Society.

“The most powerful short of the bunch, was Bound. It was poignant, important and yet tender. Boos, a 2010 youth festival winner at Cannes, displayed incredible directorial maturity.” (Adria Young, AFF Reviews, September 2015)
