About the Film

A short animation exploring the way we hide our dreams and desires, lock them away for safe keeping, instead of realising them. Since first being commissioned in Oct 06, ‘Desires’ has been shown in London, Berlin, Paris, St John’s, Canada, and across 20 cinemas around the world as part of International Women’s Day (Mar 08). It has also recently been short-listed for the UK’s Virgin Media Shorts Prize (judged by Kevin Spacey and Gurinder Chadha).

Showing as part of Version Verse, SAT 14 NOV, 1pm, Cornerhouse.
