Make Up

International Feature Film Competition

The dreamt-of holidays with her loved one at the sunny British coast have turned into a chilly reality. The plan to have a trial honeymoon slowly fades like the morning mist, and the campervan settlement turns into a labyrinth where Ruth loses her love. The harsh realism of the day melts into a disturbing nightmare when the red claws of a dark shadow pierce the campervans’ bonnets. Ruth’s only link to reality is her new job, where she meets an unknown older girl who piques her curiosity….The quest to reveal her true identity leads Ruth into uncharted territory with no way back. Blending horror, psychological drama and lesbian romance, Claire Oakley’s film depicts the distressful coming of age process with all its confusion about the new world and one’s own identity.

The Q&A with Claire Oakley will take place on 8th November 2020 at 6 pm. Watch the Mezipatra LIVE stream from the studio on our Facebook and Youtube.
