'Grass of Parnassus' Short Film

'Grass of Parnassus' Short Film - 2011

A lonely farm girl's day brightens up when she catches a glimpse of the new farm boy. Determined to engage with his attention she sets about dancing around the barn he is working in. To her delight he returns her advances and responds to her with equally enthusiastic dancing. Enchanted by each other the farm girl and boy dance through the farm yard and out into the fields. Beyond the sunshine and tall grass we learn what fate waits for them as darker picture is painted.
