British Independent Double Bill: The Silent Child / The Party

The Silent Child

2018 (UK - U)   |  20mins

The 2018 Best Live Action Short Film Oscar winner.

Set in rural England and inspired by real life events, The Silent Child centres around a profoundly deaf four year old girl named Libby who is born into a middle-class family and lives in a world of silence until a caring social worker teaches her the gift of communication.

Directed by Chris Overton.

The Party

2017 (UK - 15  Monochrome)   |  71mins

To celebrate her long-awaited prestigious post as a Shadow Minister for Health and, hopefully, the stepping stone to party leadership, Janet is throwing a party for friends at her London flat. Of course, in this select and intimate soirée, apart from Bill, Janet's self-denying academic husband, a motley crew of elite hand-picked guests have been invited.  Inevitably, before dinner is served, the upbeat ambience will shatter to pieces, as festering secrets will start surfacing in this perfect domestic war-zone.  After this night, things will never be the same again.

Directed by Sally Potter.
