Love is Blind
Love is Blind started out as a few scribbled sketches, demonstrating the problems that arise from the Male Gaze in popular film. Utilising a “Watcher” and a camera for a prop, the concept was to utilise a warped point of view to demonstrate the absurdity of everyday sexism and misogyny. The ideas then developed within the Triple Danger team, and were given form under the the watchful eye of Roehampton professor Josh Appignanesi. Now, having evolved into a fully-developed short film, Love is Blind is set to show at various horror festivals over the summer.
