"One of the most exciting new voices in horror"

Writer . Director . Producer.



Inspired by the works of Marjane Satrapi and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, The Spring is a film about forced marriage and explores the illusion of choice within the myth of "separate but equal". Set in a world where men and women live in apparently equal, yet parallel universes, The Spring is the story of a young woman on supposedly the most important day of her life: her wedding day. But her world is not as it seems.


Inspired by Ayaan...
