We will soon have a trailer from the actual film. in the mean time, here is the trailer we shot to tease you into our fantastic film project.
Losing Grace is a gripping short film thriller that keeps audiences guessing and leaves them with their hearts in their throats. Louise is forced to flee with her daughter, Grace, from her apparently abusive husband, John, only to be tracked down with dire consequences.
Losing Grace is instigated by Liz Farahadi who brought together Athena and Aradhna to develop a powerful short to lay the ground for the feature POLLY and a commitment to telling stories that matter. Committed to working with a mainly female crew, this project is as much about the story we tell as it is how and who tells it.
We are delighted to announce that we have shot the film thanks to the efforts of everyone. The film was shot entirely on location on the Isle of Man. The film is currently in post production for which we are still seeking financial support. Our fundraising campaign can be found on Green Lit Crowdfunding platform. https://greenlit.fund/project/losing-grace
