One of those short films you know the festival directors will love because it is about childhood, Six Dollar Fifty Man is set in 1970s New Zealand and follows Andy, a gutsy 8 year-old loner without much in terms of possessions who is relentlessly bullied. However, when push comes to shove he will break out of his make-believe superhero world. It was co-directed by Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland.
