Director's statement

Director's statement

My intent in making Consent is for the audience not to realise that they're watching a tragedy, and for our protagonist not to realise she's living one. In fact, we only glimpse a moment of understanding at the end of the film where our protagonist fully understands the tragedy and the hopelessness of her situation. At the heart of Consent, I also want to raise questions around agency, and a woman's ability to change her mind once she's given consent. By examining this dynamic through a non-sexual lens (though this is not immediately clear) we are able to see these questions play out in an unusual and confronting manner. My aim with Consent is to illicit an emotional response from the audience, without the audience fully understanding the true nature or indeed, the gravity of the situation; the stakes are gradually raised until the realisation that the discomfort felt throughout the film was always leading to an inevitable, tragic conclusion.
