Australian filmmaking is firing on all cylinders at the moment, with the country showing four films in Venice and six in Toronto. Most of them are high profile indies, but one of the unknown wild cards screening at TIFF is Canopy
, the debut feature from Aaron Wilson.
Singapore, February 9, 1942. The Japanese invasion is underway. Jim (Khan Chittenden), an Australian airman, wakes up dangling from a tree by his parachute strings, somewhere in the middle of a vast wilderness overrun by hostile forces.
Jim must fend for himself -- until he literally runs into a Singapore-Chinese resistance fighter, Seng (Mo Tzu-Yi), who has also been injured and is also lost. The men realize that their only hope of surviving lies with each other.
