THREAD TENSION

14m | Ruby Mastrodimos

A tense workplace drama set in a sweatshop in Thatcher’s Britain. The seamstresses are overworked, underpaid, and prone to full-body possessions. With a mixture of social realism and the supernatural, "Thread Tension" is a film about women, workers’ rights, and the power of collective action.

Saturn is a character-based sci-fi drama about a family in a picturesque seaside town whose lives are upended when a strange planet appears in the sky on a collision course for earth. The planet’s appearance brings back a life that James thought he had left years ago when he settled down with his wife and young son. But, with the outside world in chaos and his perfect family slowly falling apart, James must decide between running from his destiny or sacrificing everything he loves. We slowly learn that James is more than meets the eye. He has a secret he’s never shared with anyone… a secret that is humanity’s only hope.

The story of Saturn deals with addiction, abuse, and purpose, asking a simple question: how far would you go to save those you love?
