Getting Ready

A faded icon of stage and screen prepares for the greatest performance of her life -
a star-studded suicide. Peering into the dressing room mirror we watch her apply a mask of make-up and Champagne. Then, after a bottle of pills, she lies down to showcase her beautiful corpse. In a final dream she returns to the stage - but are the standing ovations and roses real, or just an illusion?

Film notes

A re-imagining of two avant garde films: Kenneth Anger's unfinished feature 'Puce Women', and Derek Jarman's short 'Miss Gaby'.

Filmed at the Brook Theatre, Chatham, Kent.
