ONLY THE LONELY

Short film, colour, 13 mins (post-production - UK)

Aíma has a dark secret & deliberating agoraphobia.  To alleviate her loneliness she immerses herself in a tantalising online-world where she meets and connects with a like-minded stranger.  She's not afraid of what the outside world could do to her, but rather, what she might do to it

Le VœU

Short film, colour, approx. 8 mins

A woman living a life of seclusion as a nun in a rural convent finds that her desire for love and freedom becomes stronger than her will to remain in her religious vocation.  A tender moment shared with a fellow sister over a bowl of potato peelings catalyses an urgent desire which had previously laid dormant within her.
