Make Me Up
Created by Scottish artist Rachel Maclean in 2018 to mark 100 years since women were first given the right to vote in the United Kingdom. Part horror movie, part comedy, 'Make Me Up' reflects on the shortcomings of our journey towards equality throughout the past century.
The film imagines a dystopian future where a group of women are trapped in a cruel reality TV-style competition in the brutal modernist setting of St Peter’s Seminary. Here, voting is not a liberation – it is a harsh judgement the contestants must face. New arrival Siri learns the rules of a show where compliance and attractiveness are key. Emboldened by her growing friendship with fellow inmate Alexa, Siri finds ways of sabotaging the system and discovers some terrible truths in the process.
