February Nominee - Experimental of the Month


On her wedding day, Porphyria sneaks out to say goodbye to an old lover. When they meet , the vow ‘Till Death Do Us Part’, takes on new meaning.’Porphyria’ is an experimental short film inspired by the Robert Browning poem, ‘Porphyria’s Lover’. First published in 1836, the poem caused much controversy in Victorian society for it’s brutal and shocking murder scene.Told from the lover’s side, the speaker vocalises his need to possess and turn Porphyria from subject to an idealistic object. The Lover’s belief that the horrendous murder is an act of rationality and love, reflected the patrichal society and subjecation of women in the Victorian era.
