Bosc is a psychological thriller concerning a young woman who tracks down a man she believes has killed her father. With echoes of Peter Strickland's Katalin Varga and the Dardenne brother’s The Son the film is about secrecy and deceit, lies and buried pasts. Shot in the foothills of the Pyrenees, Spain, Bosc is a collaboration between director Ian Cottage and actors Alex Elliott and Lauren Hurwood. Using a unique 5 month development process Bosc was shot in 15 days.
