Dramatic Feature

An American in Texas

Based on a true story, and set in late 1990 against the backdrop of the first gulf war, An American in Texas is the story of lifelong friends as they reach the cusp of adulthood and must decide between the hollow values of corporate careerism; or the narrow way of individualism and freedom.


In the middle of a crowded city the paths of two strangers collide. This chance occurrence initiates a night of adventure and connection that challenges their separate lives. Set in Sydney over the course of one night, Ellipsis is a portrait of the city, celebrating the distinct nature and idiosyncrasies of the people that live and work there.
