PENELOPE (2014) 


No Budget Experimental Short Film.

Official Selection - Hackney Attic Film Festival 2016.

An experimental short film / screen poem adapted from James Joyce.
In Ulysses, Molly Bloom never surfaces from her personal Ithaca and the final chapter,
Penelope, provides us with an insight into her troubled psyché through a radical,
infamously unpunctuated, stream of consciousness. In this short piece and homage to the
great literary pioneer, ‘Molly / Penelope’ is let out to explore her troubles in the night.
But what she finds about herself is perhaps reason for her to remain indoors.
