“When my Mum passed away, all of these raw emotions naturally found their way into a script,” says writer/director/producer Glenn Triggs in a press announcement about his latest feature film Ancestry Road. “I wrote about 50 pages in a day – which never happens – and felt it was very much a story worth telling. I then spent the following year perfecting this script. Ancestry Road is set in Scotland and was filmed entirely in a small town in the middle of Tasmania. We shot the whole thing in 17 days and managed to pull it off and create something very heartfelt, cinematic and honest.”

With the slogan of ‘family is forever’, the film’s plot follows Kevin (Seb Muirhead), who builds a special road for his daughter (Charlotte Gray) after she regularly goes missing on their Scottish farm. But then, deceased family members start turning up in their cars for a visit… Be sure to bring the hankies for this high concept drama executive produced by Hollywood veteran Mark Marshall, with cinematography by Benjamin Bryan (Franklin). The budget is reportedly $2.5m, which should result in a highly commercial looking project, considering the lack of bankable names in the cast.
