Fall of the Ibis King

This short film will be screened before The Peculiar Sensation of Being Pat Ingoldsby.

‘In making this film our intention was to explore the intimate breakdown of a relationship between three characters in an overtly fantastical manner. As the opera progresses, the absurd events on stage become less and less abstract.’
