David Lowery is one of the rising stars of American independent cinema. He really impresses with St Nick, a commanding, atmospheric feature following a brother and sister who have run away from some unspecified family tragedy. There is an echo of Night of the Hunter and Terrence Malick in the story of a twelve-year-old boy and his eight-year-old sister who eventually take refuge in an empty, ramshackle house in rural Texas. Abandoned and alone, they make the most of their freedom from adult control, even as Lowery conjures up an ever-present sense of dread over what might befall them. Showing with Lowery's short Pioneer (2010, 16 mins), an epic bedtime story starring Will Oldham. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: The State of Independents.
