“STRONG IS BETTER THAN ANGRY” Short Film Casting Call

Award-winning Edinburgh based filmmakers are casting for a short film about the state of the country, called STRONG IS BETTER THAN ANGRY. The film is a drama-documentary hybrid which asks ‘What makes us, as women, angry?’ Much of it will take place in a body combat style kick-boxing class. This exciting short film has been commissioned as part of a series called ‘The Uncertain Kingdom’ and will be screened all around the country at the end of the year.

We are looking for those who identify as female to perform as themselves in this film. All age groups, ethnicities, sizes and abilities are welcome and encouraged. We want a truly representative group of women on screen to explore what we feel is a timely question. Familiarity with body combat or kickboxing is welcome but not essential, although a certain level of fitness will be necessary. We want to hear about what makes you personally upset, angry or sad – so strong opinions are encouraged!

Alice Boyle Presents “COMING ALIVE”

In Association with Linlithgow Burgh Halls; Alice Boyle Presents ‘COMING ALIVE’.Alice with a sample of her work

Go with your feelings – and embrace the sheer joy of these works – Giles Sutherland – The Times – 2017

Expect to be challenged, emotionally touched and frequently amused – Vivien Devlin – ArtMag – 2017

I’m sure this vivacious and engaging woman will continue to produce more evocative collections – Phyllis McLeish – Ayrshire Magazine 2016

Coming Alive is a new body of work by Edinburgh-based artist, Alice Boyle. For many years, Boyle has sketched after daily meditation, creating odd and often distorted creatures that come streaming to mind as soon as the pencil hits the paper.  In the spring of 2018 she decided to bring these characters to life, creating a unique world that is as strange as it is familiar.

Boyle’s new work has been inspired by the title of the artist’s previous exhibition, ‘Think Less, Feel More’. While her past show was a comment on the relationship between thinking and feeling and what that might look like, here, Alice has chosen to take a less complex approach, and run with an idea that felt powerful yet simple.
