Based on the painting by Johan Liss, 'Judith' is the story of a woman who brutally avenges her husbands murder. Alison King stars as "Judith" in a modern twist on this graphic tale of revenge. I wrote and directed the film in my second term at the London Film school, shot in a single day without any recorded sound. The film was produced in collaboration with the national gallery.
