An urban fairy-tale in which three characters negotiate a space where myth and reality constantly collide. I use the character of The Lady of Shallot as the films’ central theme. Interweaving sections of the poem ‘The Lady of Shallot’ by Tennyson, with my own text, exploring feelings of isolation and the desire to connect. – A.S.
