Directors Note 연출의도

You know you’re middle-aged when you start rotting from the inside out. After an unpleasant trip to her local dentist for a tooth extraction, a middle-aged woman is given a prescription to ease the pain. Entering the pharmacy to discover a lengthy queue, courtesy of the lunchtime rush, she heads home. 

No sooner is she inside her house but she hears an ominous noise coming from upstairs. Shucking her coat she goes to investigate and discovers her teenage son has skipped school to get stoned with a friend in his bedroom. 

Horrified, she collects all of her son’s paraphernalia, his bong, grinder and various accoutrement and throws them in the bin - turfing the friend out before dumping the bin outside. She’s heard the stories; she knows how it goes - Cannabis is a gateway drug and soon he’ll be promoted to Heroin. Not the personal development she had in mind for her one and only. 


Plagued by images of her son’s drug-filled future, she makes him clean the house from top-tobottom. As her fury wanes, she cooks him dinner trying desperately to understand the path that led him to making these choices. 

She sends her son to bed and, as the day draws to a close, remembers the prescription she was given only that morning. Rushing back to the pharmacy to find it has closed. 

Unable to sleep, with her mouth throbbing, she goes in search of something to soothe the pain; first a bag of peas and then…she remembers the bin; and all the stories on the news about medicinal cannabis. Could it…should she? 

Riffling through the outdoor bin she recovers the bag and heads inside, hunting around for material among bits of broken bong, she tries in vain to roll herself a joint - how hard can it be? Apparently much harder than it looks. When the pain becomes too much to bear, she eats humble pie and asks her son for help. He rolls her a joint from a secret stash he kept hidden away. She takes it, thankful.

Director’s Statement - About the film 
Telling a story without words presented a rewarding challenge. It lets us reach as many people as possible while exploring the cinematic medium at its purist. Without dialogue, we used camera movement to create a rhythm. The film explores the theme of perspective - and crucially how perspectives can change - so we crafted an image system around this; making frequent use of POV; giving perspective to characters at important moments - and life to the inanimate objects that are key to conveying the narrative.  
To enhance the ideas of shifting perspective further, my friend and standout cinematographer Matt suggested we introduce some heavy lens breathing (an affectation of older lenses) and after some research we opted to shoot on Hawk V-Series anamorphics. Though this beautiful glass presented endless (truly endless) challenges during production, it allowed us to contrast the different dimensions in the frame. I like playing with depth; and these lenses created a clear distinction between fore- middle and background.  A huge thank you to Arri for all their support. 
The subject matter is sure to irk some viewers, but it’s important to recognise that there is no clear message to this film. It is a portrait; taking an objective look at a perfectly ordinary family - and how drugs enter into the equation in a way that’s true to life today, but without passing comment about what these events mean. It’s up to the audiences to decide how they feel about the choices these characters make. With the film, I hope to add to the ongoing debate about drugs in British society, but mainly I hope to entertain as many viewers as possible. 
If the film finds an audience, it will be the first in a trilogy of projects that explores drug use in Britain; how it is now and how, for better or for worse, it might be in the future.
