FROM FRAGMENTS tells the story of an elderly couple that must battle through the grips of dementia to finish the swan-song of their lifelong love.
The film explores the burden ‘love’ places on us: to compromise, to sacrifice and (most of all) to cherish.
A true multi-disciplinary collaboration between a musician, two dancers and a filmmaker. The film combines these three artforms to envisage the devastating emotional reality of dementia.
THE STRANGERS’ CASE
Directed by Peter Trifunovic
This new film based on a four hundred year old speech shows fear of immigration is nothing new.
In 1517 anti-immigrant riots broke out in London. Thomas More, then a deputy Sheriff of the city, intervened.
Decades later William Shakespeare wrote a speech for the play 'Sir Thomas More', in which More defended asylum seekers - 'the strangers'.
Directed by Gemma Norton
Viv is struggling with motherhood after the birth of her second child. Convinced there’s something wrong with her newborn, she tries to confide in her absent husband Terry, but is met with disinterest. As she rapidly finds herself questioning her sanity she turns to medication and drink to ease her through this parental dystopia.
Her health quickly deteriorates and she begins to realise just how much she is slipping through the net when she lets her frustrations out on her children. She begins to question the risk she is putting both her children, and herself, in.
