Directors Statement

The Ravens is a very personal short film by writer/director/producer Jennifer Perrott who grew up in a defence force family. The film deals with themes of post traumatic stress and healing. Perrott hopes that the film will help will create greater awareness for an important cause: breaking down the stigma of silence associated with PTSD by giving viewers, especially serving & returned soldiers and their families affected the courage to talk about it.
The Ravens was shot on glorious 35mm and finished in 4K.
