2016 Sundance Directing Award
Castaway on a remote, deserted island, Hank is convinced that he has no other options and no way at all to escape, and therefore decides to end his life. Just as he prepares to hang himself, he finds a dead body that has washed ashore. Hank names the body, Manny, only to realise that it possesses certain supernatural abilities and can actually talk. Will this apparent miracle that ended Hank’s solitude provide him an escape from the island? Winning the Directing Award at Sundance Film Festival where it premiered and was met with delight, Swiss Army Man is one of the weirdest, funniest and most inspiring films of the year.
