Shock the Tropfest Winner

Shock, a short film directed by Australian film director Abe Fest, won the top prize at this year’s Tropfest short film festival held in Sydney. Shock is the story of a radio announcer who has an emotional breakdown on the way to work. Forsythe dedicated his work to radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands. Forsythe explains his take on the film… “It asks the audience to maybe look at it from a different perspective – which is, maybe think about how difficult it is for a shock jock to do his job.”
