I am Delta

Over two decades ago, a mysterious creature descended down into our world. No one knows where it came from or what its purpose is, but a religious sect known as the Church of the Final Revelation sees it as an angel, and a sign from God. Every year the church randomly selects five young members to see if they are worthy of completing a holy pilgrimage to the 'angel'. I am Delta focuses on a young female initiate and the process of dehumanisation she experiences during her time with the Church.

Director Statement

I am Delta is a film about dehumanisation within our modern society, particularly of people aged 18-25 years old. That was the key reason behind the hoods and the lack of dialogue within the film, as no one talks to each other face to face, there’s always a separation between them, whether it’s how they act in public or through a screen. The construct of the church also looks at how people in this age range are expected to live to a certain expectation, and those who act outside of these expectations are punished. I also wanted to look at the topical subject of what would cause a perfectly moderate person to become radicalised, to become dedicated to a case that may have questionable morals or ideas. Looking at Daesh or the Alt Right in recent memory, that made me question how someone could look at these people and their beliefs and agree with them.
