Director Statement

Previously trained in Fine Art, my need to bring social issues and strong themes to an awareness has branched out to filmmaking. I am a young director and cinematographer from Essex, but I am now studying in the north west of the UK. I am always looking to experiment within film, developing ways to create powerful cinema and to make the audience think.
Making this documentary was something that I felt needed to be done in light of recent news of Sarah Everard, Blessing Olusegun and the study that 97% of young women in the UK have experienced sexual harassment. I am deeply concerned about the societal ways women are treated and normalised, and I hope to make more documentaries about this issue in the future.
