Silent Man

A neo-noir Sci-fi thriller

20 min Short


A silent masked crusader searches for his daughter after she is disappears from immigration detention while the government scrambles to maintain their terrorism narrative.

Silent Man is Joseph Russell’s fourth film in the director’s chair after ABC series ‘No Way San Jose’ in 2009, sci-fi short ‘Queen of the Bees’ in 2013 and political satire ‘Jeff VS the Left’ in 2014.

Written and directed by Russell, this edge-of-your-seat 20 minute neo-noir thriller explores the concept of seeking truth in a secretive, authoritarian system. It tackles the lack of empathy towards refugees by western governments and is a brutal reminder that there are two sides to every story, even when one side has no voice.
