My Baby Shot Me Down



FORMAT: 1 x 10′, 35mm

Winner of Best Short Film at the Open World Toronto Film Festival and Southampton International Film Festival.  Nominated for Best Editing at Southampton International Film Festival.

“Four pairs of stilettoes clack softly on a blue-tinted concrete floor as the women wearing them march in unison to the steady, provocative beat of the drums accompanied by guitar riffs…”

My baby shot me down is an experimental film shot on 35 mm about domestic violence with a twist. A story about five women and their insatiable desire for revenge. A film without dialogues where the rhythm is built exclusively through the music and the edit, and the images speak for themselves by being daring and surreal empowering.
