Echo Lake

Richard Story

2000, 90:00 minutes, B&W, English


The lush splendour of the Canadian west coast wilderness provides the backdrop for this haunting drama by director Richard Story. A young man (Todd Witham) searching for his mysteriously vanished brother (Harrison Coe) returns to the isolated spot deep within the ancient rainforest where the pair camped a year before. His memories of their last days together form a visually poetic meditation on the bonds of family and the pains of separation and loss.

"Creates a haunting atmosphere reminiscent of Peter Weir's 1970s film, 'Picnic at Hanging Rock' you come away from the film moved, but you're not sure why, or what you just saw..." - Marke Andrews, Vancouver Sun
