Winner of the Genera grant Portrait is a tense DocuFiction short film, starring Sorcha Groundsell (Clique, The Innocents), which tells the story of Rhetta, an industrious model who sets up a shoot with a predatory photographer, notorious for his coercion tactics and aggressive behaviour. However, little does he realise that Rhetta has orchestrated this meeting as a sting to expose his inappropriate behaviour on an online video livestream.

 

The film is built on research from interviews with 21 models about their experiences with inappropriate behaviour in the photography world, including real stories, blurring the line between fiction and documentary.

As of 2020, Portrait is currently touring the festival circuit.
