MONSTER HEART

Directed and written by Priyanga Burford

Produced by Kate Phibbs and Maria Austin

Production company Dawn Chorus Films

Production Manager Lizzie Worsdell

Synopsis

It is high summer 1851. At 54, Mary Shelley is in the last couple of months of her life, but she is stronger, more present, more creative than ever. She has had a brilliant literary career and a life filled with love, passion, addiction, fame, scandal, broken families, tragedy. Her spirit and energy are undimmed – and she’s still a goth at heart.
The brain tumour that will kill her gives Mary shattering headaches, and she is haunted by hallucinations from the laudanum she takes to ease the pain. Aware that her time is short, she wants to set things right with the women she has crossed paths with. Together they will put to rest the memory of Percy Bysshe Shelley: a man they’ve all loved and hated. Decades before, his body had been cremated on the beach in Italy. A family friend pulled his heart from the flames and brought it back to England. It’s been on Mary’s desk in a silken shroud ever since.
This film will tell the story of Mary’s weekend-long birthday gathering. She wants to cremate Shelley’s heart on the beach: a ritual to mark the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next – even if that is oblivion. There will be long sunsets, wild waves, starry nights, ice cream, brandy, the comfort of friendship and the sting of old rivalries. Of course, every good party must have a gate-crasher, and this celebration is no exception. There is a dead woman in attendance.

GRAVID

Directed and written by Laura Smith

Produced by Elena Valeri

Production company Borderland Productions

Associate Producer Lizzie Worsdell

Synopsis

Amy is terrified. There’s something repulsive growing inside her. She fears it’s the physical manifestation of the secret she’s hiding from her boyfriend: she doesn’t want children. He does. And he’s excited because he thinks she’s pregnant. GRAVID is a visceral social horror exploring the pressure to conform, the fear of rejection and the desire to balance who we are alongside acceptance from those we love. It’s also a portrayal of a woman who doesn’t want children. Although expectations around this are starting to be discussed in the cultural sphere, cinematic portrayals are still relatively rare. More often, it’s male characters having this dilemma..
