A day in the life of an asylum seeker (2017, drama, 20 mins)
His Girl 2
Rhys and Amber have history. When they meet again, will they make better choices?
His Girl is about a girl will do for love. Amber has a new man. He is older and has a car. Her friends are jealous. But this relationship is not as good as it first seems.
His Girl came out of a collaborative process between London Bubble’s LB+, Marie Vickers and Catherine Donaldson as Addition Films. Our way of working evolved when we were working on a project that London Bubble was running with Southwark Youth Offending Services to help start conversations about what is a healthy relationship among young people. Last year we, as a group, decided to come together again to make His Girl. We took the characters we created in the project and developed them further by using theatre games, improvisation and exercises on the details of life to develop the script, performances and choreography. This ensures that motivation marks the movement and position of the camera and the actors in the frame, giving them the framework to play freely. We continued to develop this with the follow up short His Girl 2. The method produces moving and truthful results as it keeps the dialogue fresh and authentic, and leaves the audience wanting to know more.
Beauty and Brains
What would you do to prevent rape and abuse being part of your everyday life?
To be third-gender in Nepal means a choice of three careers; giving blessing at weddings, begging or prostitution. They are excluded from family and school, are prey to security forces, blackmail and sexual abuse. However, as Nepal attempts to write a new constitution there is a chance of change. In order to be heard above the clamour and civil unrest, the third-genders with Sunil Pant and the Blue Diamond Society embarked on the Beauty and Brains Talent Contest. This is the story of a community gaining the confidence to confront prejudice and tell society they are natural human beings.
