Short Film: The Disappearance of Willie Bingham

The Disappearance of Willie Bingham
Australia | 2016 | 13 minutes | Matthew Richards

Part of the SciFi & Creature Features Shorts Block starting at noon on Saturday, September 10!
Willie Bingham is the first man to undergo a radical new justice program. The government has introduced Progressive Amputation as a punishment for capital crime — the real life version of ‘an eye for an eye’. The controversial procedures, performed live in front of victims’ families, stop only at their request.
A fantastic metaphorical meditation on the nature of capital punishment from Australia. Where is the line between justice and vengeance?

Cast: Greg Fryer (The Sapphires), Kevin Dee (Submerge, Swallow, Strange Bedfellows)
Cinematography: Liam Gilmour

Format: DCP
