Nurtured Image


ALT | International Shorts

While driving a stolen rickshaw, a teen boy’s relationship with his younger sister is irrevocably altered over the course of one night. Nurtured centres around the close bond between these two siblings. After getting ribbed at dinner over his first shave, Jacob is determined to prove himself, even if it means dragging sister Alex along on an illicit late-evening ride. There is a real edginess and immediacy to the film that amplifies his internal tension until it almost explodes. A beautifully tough story of overreacting and under-planning.
