Gratitude Journal is a short film I wrote and directed in May 2020 during the corona virus lock down. I wanted to dip my toe into film-making and video-editing and this seemed like the perfect time to do it.
The piece is a monologue, inspired partly by Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellman which I had just read and it’s cut with scenes filmed around Sheffield, where I was staying at the time. This piece is performed brilliantly by my friend and collaborator Leila Nashef. You can watch it below!
