Short Film: INCALL, 10min., USA, Thriller

3d2760af4f poster

INCALL is a confrontational thriller about sexual power play, greed and deception explored from a female perspective. It examines issues that have traditionally been avoided by moviemakers because of a gender bias to stereotype women as softer and more compassionate. It portrays three women as confident, complex, sexually focused characters who represent the modern woman. This project hopes to raise awareness of these challenging yet critical concerns.
