Contrasting visions of world cinema
GREAT BRITAIN | 86 minutes | 2018
A group of young women are thrown into the enchanting yet dangerous world of a reality show, where they are forced to live in a dollhouse-themed set and compete with each other to survive. Behind its outrageous bubblegum-pink aesthetic where the conventions of art are subverted, Rachel MacLean’s feature takes a scathing look at the issues related to contemporary female identity. Funny, horrifying and political, the Scottish multimedia artist’s film is a savage screed against a totalitarian patriarchy and an era when self-image is dictated and regulated by the media.CANADIAN PREMIEREIn collaboration with Celleuloid."The multimedia creator Rachel MacLean presents an intriguing yet terrifying world in her latest film Make Me Up." Epigram"Rachel MacLean's Make Me Up is a pastel horror satire for the #metoo age." Syfy"Horror meets animation meets children's fantasy gone sour." Syfy
