The Missing Scarf is an Academy Award short-listed black comedy exploring some of life’s common fears: fear of the unknown, of failure, rejection and finally the fear of death.
Albert the Squirrel makes a startling discovery ... an empty space where once his favourite scarf lay. He heads off into the forest only to find everyone else is preoccupied with worries of their own. He helps who he can before moving on but never seems to get any closer to his goal. Ultimately, Albert’s problem is put in perspective by the friends he helped and the problems they faced and overcame together.
"The Missing Scarf [deals with the]... amplification of everyday fears – fear of the unknown, failure, rejection and finally death. The film’s script mirrors my internal debate on the subject – comparing the pros and cons of each, allowing the audience to draw their own conclusions"
