Winner of the Genera grant, Portrait is a tense drama short film, starring up and coming Actress Sorcha Groundsell (BBC's Clique, Netflix's The Innocents).

It 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 overcoming sexual abuse in the photography world, including real stories.

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