Director of Photography: Ari Wegner 

A woman walking her dog alone in the bush has a strange encounter. Australian actress Mirrah Foulks (Animal Kingdom, Top of the Lake) directs this excellent and disturbing effort.

Lensed by the always amazing Ari Wegner (The Kettering Incident), Trespass is understandably simplistic in its narrative and theme, but it’s gorgeous to watch unfold and when it does it’s surprisingly resonant.

The film doesn’t miss any chance to create gorgeous arrangements of pattern, line, and colour. Every shot is a lesson in contrast, composition and depth, and it’s clear that Wegner is one of our best cinematographers working today.
