SEEDS Fine Cut 4 Credits Hi Rez.mp4.00_0


SEEDS is a new take on the story of Persephone, allowing her the autonomy to decide her own fate.


In this version, instead of being kidnapped to go to the underworld, Persephone makes the decision herself.

Filmed in beautiful 16mm Ektachrome, Emily's vision takes a familiar myth and turns it on its head exploring ideas about female gaze and storytelling artifice in the process.
