Year 12 student Amy in local filmYear 12 student Amy has her first film role in the can. Local writer, director and film maker, Alec Liddle
is in post-production for his short film 'The Tremendous Silence of Mid July' and Amy is in the lead role of Cait, a teenager questioning the meaning of friendship. 
Keep an eye on the website for screening details but in the meantime you can read the synopsis below.
Cait, a skinny, 15-year-old, missionary's daughter, unpacks boxes in her new bedroom. She comes across a pile of photos of herself and friends from way back. She takes them outside and burns them.

At church with her parents, she meets the minister's son, Zach, a shy boy about her age. Drawn together by mutual boredom and loneliness they begin to spend more and more time together collecting hymnbooks after church and taking photos with Zach’s old SLR camera. In his bedroom, she sees her picture among a collection of photos of Zach's friends, who all moved away. He asks if she has photos of her old friends, but she says she doesn't keep them.

When her father is called back to the mission field, Cait’s inevitable departure draws ever closer. Will Zach be another photo she doesn’t keep?
