Courtisane festival, notes on cinema, 23nd edition, 27 - 31 March 2024
An urban fairy tale in which three characters negotiate a space where myth and reality constantly collide. Syed uses the character of The Lady of Shallot as the film’s central theme. Interweaving sections of the eponymous poem by Tennyson, with her own text, the film explores feelings of isolation and the desire to connect.
A domestic symphony from a woman’s point of view; the portrait of a grandmother, mother and child and their home.
