Get to know the short film: SHAPING SCARS, 7min, UK, LGBT, Dance

Playing at June 2016 LGBT Film Festival in Toronto

Shaping scars a4 2

‘Shaping Scars’ takes the viewers on a journey with two girls who once loved each other, but while one is able to embrace herself openly (and therefore their relationship), the other is struggling to step into the light and shake off her demons. They love, they hate, they are passionate, intimate, they get physical when one hurts the other, they make love, they raise then break one another. Through dance, music and spoken word we witness a true love story which was equally inspired by the creators’ straight, gay and lesbian relationships making the film a true testament of love being universal.

The poem within the piece opens with a reference to King Edward VIII who abdicated in 1936 because of a woman he adored, Wallis Simpson. The launch of this film in December 2016 marks the 80th anniversary of Edward abandoning the throne because his love for her was that powerful. But not all of us could make that sacrifice…
