Tudor King

Tudor King

| 10 min

This short film is based on a short story by Canadian author Rudy Wiebe about a man who fantasizes about being a British king. His “court” is situated in an abandoned house on a frozen prairie. A little boy, wandering by after school, is invited in to meet this royal pretender to the throne. The man’s delusion, intensity, and paranoia are depicted in a sombre, haunting atmosphere set to an enthralling classical score.
