Wartime, 1942. Singapore. An Australian fighter pilot (Khan Chittenden), shot down in combat, awakens suspended in the treetops. As night devours day, he must navigate through a dangerous jungle teeming with unknown wildlife and enemy soldiors in search of sanctuary. Happening upon a similarly stranded Chinese soldier (Tzu-yi Mo), the two men must transcend language and culture barriers to survive.
A cinematic tour de force exploring the collision of war, nature and its impact on humanity, CANOPY was lauded at the Toronto International Film Festival. Aaron Wilson’s thrilling, breathtaking film marks the debut of an exciting new voice in Australian cinema. Screening for the ANZAC day long weekend.
