The Foundling: A Spectacular Cinematic Saga of Loss and Recovery

The Foundling: A Spectacular Cinematic Saga of Loss and Recovery

The Foundling is a recently premiered HD-3D short film, part of the Philips Parallel Lines series of films.  The Phillips collection consists of original short films using the same brief six-line dialogue, which this year was: “What is that?  It’s a unicorn.  I’ve never seen one up close before.  Beautiful.  Get away, Get away.  I’m sorry.”

The Foundling is a creative and richly detailed historical piece directed by Barney Cokeliss, which was shot in collaboration with the award-winning team of stereographers that also worked on the 3D blockbuster, Avatar (2010).  In the film, an abandoned boy has a chance reunion with his long-lost mother in the drama set within a traditional touring circus in 1930s England.
