RIVERBOAT is a short film centred around Matt, an Afghanistan Veteran dishonorably discharged from the military, who is plagued by memories of his past. As such, hallucinations of his ex-girlfriend and her sister manifest themselves in Matt’s life. RIVERBOAT follows one day in the life of Matt as he goes from mind-numbing isolation during the day to a deluded dinner party with the apparitions of his girlfriend and her sister. The film is a commentary on isolation, loneliness, and being haunted by the events of your past.

Jack Burney, the Director and Creator of this short psychological drama has had short films showcased at international film festivals as well as having edited award winning pieces. His World War II short drama is available to watch on Amazon Prime. But if you would like to know more about his work, a link will be provided upon application.

Jack Burney is planning to also submit RIVERBOAT to film festivals around the world.
