iShorts 2015 Project - 'Poison Tree'

'Poison Tree' is the next in an eclectic catalogue of beautiful, macabre and darkly comic short films from Nottingham's very own twin-talents, John and Tom Turrell.  

Inspired by a mixture of William Blake and the overwhelming feeling of unrest that can come over oneself when you think, "Oh my God - I could literally do anything right now and no one would be able to stop me", comes 'Poison Tree'.

It is the story of Shirley, a young woman out to avenge her sister's untimely death by gatecrashing the birthday party of an old school friend, the sort of birthday party that only leafy middle class England could make so excruciatingly prim and proper.

Directors: Tom & John Turrell 
Producer: Anna Griffin
