clementines

"You said you always wore orange because your name was Clementine, and that I didn’t, because it was mine."

Clem is returning to her childhood home.  

 

After almost seven years away, it is not only the funeral of her once stepfather that is bringing her back,

but what she is running away from and who she is returning to; her old step-sister Clémentine. 

 

The women haven’t seen each other since they were separated, but what tore them apart as teenagers is now pulling Clem back. 

' There is much to love about every aspect of Barraclough’s observation on love, loss and fleeting moments of illusory bliss. The whole thing plays out like someone’s idealised, glimmering memories from years ago, the actual event of which was less than poetic.' Indie Shorts Mag

A graduate of University of Arts London’s inaugural Film Masters, Laurie co-wrote 'Clementines', his first professional short since graduating, with screenwriter Frankie Meredith.

Though a filmmaker first, a winding creative journey has taken Laurie beyond film into music, advertising, photography and theatre in his short career.

 

'Clementines' represents Laurie's return to narrative drama and having directed several music videos, installation pieces, commercials and plays in the last two years, he has honed the distinct storytelling style and strong cinematic voice on display in the film.
