The Moon and Me
short film, 2020


Kelechi’s world seems to be falling apart. Her family has been forced to move from her childhood home, and to add to the chaos we’re also experiencing one of the strangest natural phenomena to date with the moon being stuck still in the sky for three days. When the power cuts out she decides to go for a walk around the town she once knew so well. After a moment of clarity, she realises that the unknown may not actually be as scary as she had once thought...
