About the Event
Prevenge (Alice Lowe, 2017)
Old-age romance, dogs and a sunny London park - what else could you ask for? Fern (Alison Steadman) is a 60-Alice Lowe’s directorial and writing debut uses the horror genre as a vice to explore femininity and isolation. The director also stars as the film's protagonist Ruth, who is convinced that her foetus is compelling her to murder. Unlike numerous egotistical star driven directorial debuts, Prevenge is a strange concoction of the slasher horror and comedy – making for a truly original recipe of British independent filmmaking. Lowe’s straight-faced performance is all the more impressive when considering the actor was seven months pregnant when filming the role. Her ability to create awkwardness in a scene lends itself well to her script-writing skills. Alice popped out the script in just two weeks, and shot it a month later on a schedule of just 11 days.
