THE LAMB, 6min., Australia

Directed by Richie Valentino
This classic tale of a lamb and wolf takes a turn slightly obscure from its average known story. Set in a desert landscape, Lambs travel to and from their destinations stopping for water along the way. It’s been many years and generations since the Lambs’ began this journey, but this is the first Lamb attempting the path suffering a slight handicap. In this tale, there is a message to be heard and sometimes that message needs to be pushed just a little harder to be understood.
