A film shot in Brimscombe had its film premiere at the Electric Picture House in Wotton last night, Friday.
Written and directed by actor Susan Lynch, A Woman’s Face is a short film about the aftermath of suicide on a man’s bereaved wife. When her husband’s body is retrieved from a canal, Anna walks out on her young children and retraces her dead husband’s steps.
The film features sisters Laura and Vic Ashcroft, Matt Connors-Jones, Lou Baxter and children Otto and Kit Carrington. Luke Smith composed original music for the film.
Stroud Times co-founder Matt Bigwood was also on board as the sound recordist and one of the editors on the film.
