SUSHI NOH is a 17-minute AFTRS Masters short film. It is a surreal horror film that explores the vivid monstrosities that plague children’s nightmares. The story follows Eli, a young Asian Australian child who encounters a strange sushi-making kitchen appliance whilst staying at his unpleasant Uncle Donnie’s house. Over the course of the evening, Eli’s abstract nightmares surface to reality by twisting and warping Uncle Donnie’s body into a perverse creature borne from the seeds of his darkest fears.
