Looking for Horses 2001 dir. Anthony Lawrence (6 mins)

“Sisters Gemma and Ruby accompany their parents to French Island, Victoria on a summer holiday. They explore the place but are disappointed to find there are no horses, that the rabbits are dying and that the shop owner is unfriendly. With no accessible water to swim in, they coat themselves in mud, planning to surprise their parents. Instead, they discover the truth about their parents’ relationship. The film is narrated by the eldest sister, Gemma, now an adult.” Marian Quigley
