Florence Kosky captivates audiences with her visually potent short ‘Neither Seen Nor Heard’.

In light of the world premiere, The Directors Notes platform featured  Florence Kosky’s upcoming therapy drama ‘Neither Seen Nor Heard’ on their must-see short film list.

The film premiered at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth in Seattle and was co-written by Florence and its star Jessamine-Bliss Bell. ‘Neither Seen Nor Heard’ bagged a nomination for Best Narrative and the Special Achievement in Acting award at the festival.

In a surreal therapist’s session, and using dialogue lifted from real encounters with women, we delve into societal reactions to survivors of sexual assault.

“Set in a therapist’s office, the film is a “clever and nightmarish visualisation of facing trauma through the opinions of others. (…) It’s a visually potent short and Kosky delights in the production design of her protagonist’s recollections, paying homage to David Lynch through a series of heightened characterisations that are each underpinned by Chloe Caillet’s subtle, jazzy score.”

DIRECTORS NOTES

NSNH will next screen at the Oscar-qualifying Deadcenter Festival, No Coast Film Festival and Short-Sighted Cinema.
