The film starts in the past and ends over thirty years from now. It charts the lives of four young people from 1987 – 2046. They are different: not telepathic mutants or alien fifth columnists, however. They are deaf. The End envisages a cure for deafness and then follows the consequences of such on the lives of the protagonists and, indeed, on deaf culture.
Created in a documentary manner (very similar to those you see which visit their subjects once every decade or so) the four children grow to adulthood and their decision whether or not to take The Treatment has a profound effect on their lives. The End raises questions not only about the nature of disability but our compassion as a species and our willingness to cleanse what frightens or disturbs us.

Many years have passed since it last visited but Walter remembers the fear that they provoked when he was a child. To his own daughter Hannah, however, the monster is little more than a myth. Then, one day, she hears an enormous roar emanating from the woods…
Monster was directed by Deborah Burns and stars Jodelle Ferland and R.Douglas Hutchison. It is a fable with a dark and humorous twist that will surprise and delight you. I certainly was!

Snugbury’s, a farm-based ice-cream store which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually to taste their splendid treats, decided to mark this anniversary with something special. Visitors are used to their yearly straw sculpture displays but this year they have outdone themselves with this amazing homage to one of the world’s favorite and most long-lived TV shows.

This somewhat inscrutable science fiction short movie did perhaps leave me with more questions than answers, but not unsatisfactorily so whatsoever, even though it is a brave filmmaker who leaves so much up to the imagination. However, director Raphael Rogers pulls it off and it’s great to see a science fiction movie with a female protagonist, here ably and enigmatically played by Bianca Malinowski (pictured above).
