FAREWELL SHE GOES
Inspired by the life of Dido Elizabeth Belle (1761-1804), FAREWELL SHE GOES is a late 18th century story about two young women who sneak away from their strict stately home existence to lay their pet canary to rest. One white, one mixed race; these women are cousins bonded by more than blood. Stood at the cusp of the ocean, it soon transpires that one of them is pregnant, and they contemplate what should be done.
The film was shot during the COVID-19 pandemic under strict safety conditions, and is due for release in 2021 as part of a fundraiser for charity Womankind.
