“I LOVE YOU MORE THAN MY OWN SKIN” ― FRIDA KAHLO
Recently married couple Lucy and Christopher are coping with their grief in opposite ways after the stillbirth of their child. Christopher just wants life to continue as normal but Lucy sees evidence of the continued presence of her child everywhere.
After Christopher leaves for work, Lucy’s attention is drawn to a sound emanating from the room at the end of the corridor which seems to frighten and attract her in equal measure. As she approaches the sound’s source, the corridor walls become sticky and the steady drip of water transforms into something altogether more supernatural. Lucy finds herself drawn into a birth of her own.
LUCY - ANITA ADAM GABAY
Anita moved to the UK from her native Paris age fourteen determined to become bilingual and train at LAMDA. After having achieved both, she went on to train further at the Giles Foreman Centre for Acting. Her story with the stage starts as a child, working with the likes of Julie Brochen, and continuing in London with her last part being Beatrice in John and Beatrice (dir. Carole Fréchette). ‘Part of Me’ was Anita’s first short film and she has gone on to film ‘Julia’ in the BBC series ‘Baptiste’. Anita originally trained as a dancer and musician as a child, and she employs both movement and singing as artistic languages that feed her craft as much as Yat Malmgren’s movement psychology.
