MAXIMUS

www.maximusshortfilm.com

‘Maximus’ is a story of heartache, imagination and magic!

Written and directed by Richard Prendergast, the film follows young India as she tells the story of her brave brother, Maximus to a seemingly uninterested listener, Mike.What follows is a story only a child could concoct. A story of loss and triumph. Of wizards and beasts. Of Angels and Warriors. This isn’t some random fantastical story, this is a carefully curated plan by a young girl desperate to tell the tale of her brother.

 

This is Maximus.
