Made for International Women’s Day, The One is an emotive and elegant art film designed to explore a key issue of our times. It’s a visual discourse inspired by the monumental ‘Me Too’ movement, showing differing visages of female strength, beauty, power and identity that unite to empower and inspire.

The project was devised and created to spread an inspiring message of solidarity, harmony and power at a time when the world needs it, and is aptly being released on March 8th; International Women’s Day 2019.

The film interweaves stylised vision featuring vignettes of female cast members with an emotive and impassioned script with the intricately beautiful track Elevator Song from British artist and composer Keaton Henson who graciously offered his work for use in this project.

All shot on 16mm film in Sydney, Australia, with accompanying promotional stills all shot on 35mm film The One is a message for us all.
