Private Project


A non-narrative short. Maglennow is that place that manyof us have found ourselves in at some point in our lives. A place that traps us and persuades us to stop growing. The longer a person stays in Maglennow, the harder it is to leave. This short film is about my time in that place and my fight to leave.

Director Statement

I am always looking for new ways to express myself and connect with audiences. Whether through my photography or film I strive to create visceral experiences that deal with topics such as mental health and life in the UK.
