Short film (4’10”)

The love story of a Woman and a... Spider!

While spiders prepare their ‘webs’ so do humans.
Meanwhile a Girl and a Spider meet.
But whose wedding is it?
And does she understand when she says ‘I Do’?

Exploring traditional story telling I came to think that we need a retelling of some fairy tales or create new ones. To challenge once and for all the ‘happy ever afters’ deeply imbedded in our psyche, Webbed takes a twist on the traditional ‘Red Riding Hood’, ‘Red Shoes’, and the institution of marriage. It proposes a reading that gives a truthful ending as suppose to one devised to blind and control women’s freedoms. This new tale explores our relationship to ‘the other’, understanding that ‘the other’ belongs to a world very different to one’s own.
