Early Light will be based on a performance shot at a rockpool at Treyarnon Bay, Cornwall, where a group of women will sing at dusk and dawn.
Early Light will be filmed with the camera in the middle of the rock pool, rotating 360 degrees to show the performers arranged around the edge. These scenes will be interspersed with images of limbs aligning with natural forms, seaweed and rock forms. These passages are symbolic of regaining joy, of being back in the world, aligning with nature, rather than being at odds.
The film and its future screenings are motivated by my experiences of infertility and childlessness and aim to give a platform for people who are childless not by choice, to give a voice to unheard experience and support moving to acceptance and joy.
In development stage.
