A short film for disaffected insomniacs.
Having something of a troubled relationship with unconciousness, writer/director Marc Blackie wrote the text that would become the foundation for Inevitable Silence during a dark and possibly stormy night. Dreamy oblivion proving once again elusive, a sleep hypnosis session was listened to for all of at least two minutes, before the asinine words of the piece drove the would-be somnambulist into an indignant rage. Words were hastily scratched onto paper, the words that would go on to form the bulk of the film and a series of small darkly erotic vinettes shot to compliment this indignant fury.
The film was shot during the 2020/2021 lockdowns, with the director traveling the country to shoot in the performers own bedrooms, restrictions occasionally being damned for the sake of the project.
Marc Blackie is an award-winning English photographer and filmmaker, whose short films and images inhabit a world of sexually charged existentialism and have been described as “Jarringly combining eroticism with the uncomfortable and sinister” by the New York Magazine.
“Brilliant surrealist work which exploits and examines the iconography of eroticism, full of introverted beauty and a vein of very black humour underpinning a variety of sexual hang ups. Exceptional and inspirational.”
