About the Project


Professional ash scatterer and part time scumbag, Arthur leads a solitary life. promising a peaceful farewell in an exotic location, Arthur's ash scattering business is an easy way to make a quick buck; the dead don't talk back. However, a chance encounter in the outback leads Arthur to a client like no other. As Arthur journeys into the heart of the desert with a mysterious figure, his memories blur into the present, his client seems to know more then they let on. As tensions rise between the two, Arthur is forced to confront his own mortality.

Director’s Statement

“For me, The Scatterer is very much an exploration of my own fear and morbid curiosity of mortality. While I didn’t consider it at the time, I wrote The Scatterer as my grandfather was passing, and retrospectively this was a huge influence. Arthur’s journey, coming to terms with the unavoidable uncertainty of death, is reflective of my own.

We are increasingly shielded from the later stages of life, with aged care and hospitals shrouding death in secrecy. I was fascinated as to how growing up surrounded by death would affect someone’s views on mortality. There’s a strange beauty about death, an existence in the unknown, almost mystical, I want that to come across in this film” - Felix Lovell
