Short Film of the Week: Night of the Foxes
Night of the Foxes Is set over one day in the depths of the idyllic Kent countryside. We witness an orchard owner, faced with a failing crop and the pressures of parenting, tail spinning in all aspects of his personal life.
Through long landscape shots and handheld camera movements, Tom Haines delivers a look into an orchard owner’s frustration of a fruitless summer as unwanted foxes and hormonal teenagers threaten to push him over the edge. Starring Charmanae Amber as the the orchard owner’s teenage daughter, the film portrays a man’s struggle to hold on to his family and his orchard simultaneously, as his daughter forms a relationship with one of his seasonal staffers. Fed up over his failing crop, Grant Masters stars as a father who decides to act on his own and hunt the shrieking foxes in the middle of the night.
