With a cast of predominantly non-trained talent unearthed from within Melbourne's South Sudanese refugee community, Grey Bull looks at the theme of identity in an unfamiliar culture and demonstrates what people are often asked to leave at the door when they arrive in a new place.
Says Bell: "The quality of films screened at the festival was incredibly inspiring and to be in that kind of company was a huge honour. I'm really excited for all our cast and crew and all the people who worked so hard on the project. We made a beautiful little film."
 
Eddy also took home the Rouben Mamoulian Award for Best Director at the Sydney Film Festival Dendy Awards held in June.
