Nash the founder of Blue Tongue Films (along with brother Joel Edgerton) whose new short film, BEAR, was selected for competition at the 64th Cannes International Film Festival. It’s Nash’s highly anticipated follow-up to his multi-award winning short film SPIDER. Both films start out quite serious & then become wickedly funny a little like Nash himself!
