Watch Audience FEEDBACK – GILT Short Film

AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEO:

  MOVIE POSTERGILT, 22min, UK, Thriller/Drama
Directed by Julian Stevens

Searching for a legendary hoard of gold coins, a man is goaded to unearth the darkness buried within.

Director Statement:

With GILT we set out to create a filmic space from the landscape that would reflect Paige’s internal phycological state. A supernatural menace is hinted at, but never made explicit. We wanted to embrace the uncanny, the dreamy, and a sense of foreboding.

I was interesting in exploring shifting perspectives, wrong footing the viewer with reveals, hidden pasts, and secret bestial inner natures.

Audiences will see nods to Nick Roeg in the time jumps, and oblique story-telling, and early Polanski in the intense visualisations of disjointed inner worlds, along with other stylised, psychological, surreal films of the 1970s.

Anna Bogacz atmospheric photography makes use of soft, rich images and primary colours, and Chris Kemsley’s haunting, off-key score contributes to this distinctive, immersive world.

GILT features a characterful, menacing performance from Tim Bentinck (David Archer in Radio 4s’ The Archers, and numerous TV and film appearances), and a blistering, emotional intensity from new-comer Christopher Hughes.
