David Knight - 27th Apr 2016

A small boy escapes the shadow of domestic abuse by creating his own Private Idaho, deep in the woods, in Tom Gorst's video for Prose's Home Of The Brave.

And the potential darkness of the story mostly stays at the margins, as everything is viewed from the boy's perspective, and his determination to create a place that can serve as a home from home – and not just for him. A poignant story well told by Tom Gorst - with a charming performance from young Oscar Bennett.
