Lucy's Raw Eyes
Meat production has been prohibited everywhere in the States, but Lucy, a curious journalist, is able to find the only restaurant that serves it... but: WHERE DOES THE MEAT COME FROM?
After spinning around few festivals and cinemas including La Sala Matadero (Madrid), San Diego Film Festival and the Monkey Bread Tree Awards (London), we are very pleased to finally present to the public: LUCY’S RAW EYES.
Jury Member, Ben Rider says: (Monkey Bread Tree Film Awards)
"Ines Sorlat’s Lucy’s Raw Eyes is shot mostly in a stunning and delicate black and white palette – which, evidently, allows for the eye-popping blood and garnish to blend away into a more cerebral image, than say a grotesque feast. The short film, which at times feels like a cross of Tim Burton and Brandon Cronenberg’s work, making a wonderful social commentary with a bit of a Gothic humbug comedy element.
There is also the cast – a group of characters, most of whom appear for a few moments and then vanish, who are very convincing, and energetic. Furthermore, with the right shots and cutting, the world which the lead persona inhabits, played by the very talented Sarah Bartholomew, becomes tactile, and heavily textured in its understanding of ‘on screen space’, and the viewer’s understanding of filmic space.
Overall, when considering its production values, and its consistent quality, Lucy’s Raw Eyes is a rare thing – a short film which both utilizes its budget to the max, but also appears to be a ‘real’ piece of film which isn’t simply defined by the gimmick of a self contained narrative. It’s quite frankly just plain old simply great."
