UK COMPETITION: The Double Life Of... (at BFI)
JAMIE, dir. Esmé Creed-Miles
Who we present to the real world isn't always the person we really are. This eclectic batch of character-led fictions digs into true selves, concealment and catharsis.
Whether rebuffing other’s expectations, testing your own moral limits or reeling from a love lost, these films show interiorities spilling over into the present and how a double life is often lived in plain sight.
Including the directorial debut of actor Esmé Creed-Miles (Hanna, Dark River).
Programmed by Philip Ilson. 73'
This programme contains a graphic depiction of bulimia, drug use, suicide and some violence.
