Produced and directed by Roger & Reid 2011
duration 17 mins

Trail of Tears follows two oddball characters on a saga into the unknown. Set in the North East of Scotland, Trail of Tears blurs the boundaries between artistic performance and cinematic narrative. A journey of unconscious discovery & unearthing hidden demons.  It is both highly emotive & disturbing.
