BBC New Creatives commission due for broadcast on BBC4 and BBC iplayer later this year.

Birdcage follows two girls who conspire to escape from an authoritarian society where young people are placed in cages until marriage. Both humans and birds are social creatures and suffer when living in isolation (source: PETA). Modern humans, like caged birds, are isolated and disconnected. The cages are a metaphor for chastity belts of the mind and how society dictates that we disconnect from ourselves and each other emotionally.

Shot on Arri Amira and Arri Alura 18-80mm.
