From the creator:
Tend tells the story of a father and daughter living peacefully in the forest, until one day their familiar routine begins to fall apart. As he struggles to keep the fire burning, the father loses sight of what’s truly important – and spirals into an obsession with the flames.
Tend was commissioned by WeTransfer, and premiered at OFFF Barcelona 2018.
