Film Title: ‘A Film By Abigail’
Length: 5 minutes
Description: A young child, Abigail, discusses her new toy video camera she received for Christmas; leading her to create and explain the characters and plot of an intricate story she has for a film.
Exploring the nature of auterism, writing and storytelling through the eyes of Abigail – we see the difficulty of articulation to others and an innocent single voice behind an optimistic piece of work.
