3rd Navi Mumbai International Film Festival NMIFF-2016 welcomes the submission of a short film "Cetaphobia" from Australia,Directed by Erin Coates and Anna Nazzari.
"Cetaphobia" is a Ghost Story set in the coastal town of Albany, which traces the haunting and ultimate misfortune of a married couple troubled by a whale spirit. The obscure and ambiguous spirit is an unsettling remnant of the Port City’s once viable whaling industry. Its presence is awakened after the wife, who is a scrimshander, starts inscribing on the only remaining evidence of its life: a tooth. This action unleashes a dark and cetaceous force which possesses the scrimshander and her husband and draws them back to the site of the Cheynes II, the sunken wreck of the whale chaser, where they are eventually overcome by a disconcerting and unknowable horror.
