Seven Deadly Sins

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

This is the debut film for British director and writer Steve Reid. It's a surreal and classical concept entwining Shakespearean and classical undertones with modern lyrics.

As the storyteller's chilling words suggest: 'The seven of past - where are they now sweet brethren?" This is a musical beyond any pre-conception, delving deep into social issues with powerful images and music.

We follow the final days of a lonely guy, and through his thoughts, dreams, memories and media the seven sins are dramatically brought back to life. Sloth becomes drug abuse, envy becomes vandalism, etc., as each sin is transferred into its relevant modern day problem. With deep reality this is a tonal exploration of life itself, and our place within it.
