This weeks Sunday Short Theatre is a bloody and bold fantasy The Neolith. The ambitious , brazen short is the second feature from up and coming filmmaker Daniel Boocock, 30 minutes film of a mysterious individual takes action against a pack of bloodthirsty outsiders whose thirst for dominance is thriving.
Fans of Game Of Thrones even Valhalla Rising (starring Mads Mikkelsen) and Vikings will adore this. Combining gnosticism, mysticism and Carl Jung’s theories, and of course primal man.
Visually this looks striking , raw and graphic…
Amidst a beautiful and unforgiving landscape in an unknowable time and place, a mysterious individual takes action against a pack of bloodthirsty outsiders whose thirst for dominance is thriving, with brutal and bloody consequences…

Combining aspects of mysticism, Jungian theories of the shadow self and Gnosticism, the film defies interpretation leaving powerfully raw and violent images that linger in the mind.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Daniel Boocock (The Desolate One), The Neolith stars Jak Corrie and Dan Boie Kratfeldt.
