‘The Inuring’ is an anti-bullying short film exploring the divide between two sisters.
The Inuring tells the story of Aleisha, an eighteen-year-old girl who shares the family home with her twenty-five-year-old sister Claudette.
Ever since their Father passed away three years ago, the rift between the sisters has grown wider. Aloof to the outbursts and moods of her troubled younger sister, Claudette has instead turned her focus to transforming the once modern home with a vintage decor.
She has one room left to infiltrate with her passion for nostalgia, Aleisha’s. But that room is already consumed by nostalgia, with Aleisha’s ache for the protective father they have lost. Having raised his girls alone, the fragile Aleisha has been left to fend for herself, and has been losing the battle.
After years of avoiding Claudette’s remonstrations, Aleisha reluctantly opens up, and their fractured past is finally dragged out into the light.
This James Hughes directed film was nominated (in the final four) for Best Short Film at the National Film Awards 2017, UK. It has also won awards in Nassau Film Festival, The English Riviera Film Festival and Festival Cine Marbella. ‘The Inuring’ stars Emily Haigh and Sarine Sofair in lead roles.
