FEATURE DRAMA: SCRIPT
Is the most gothic of teenage love affairs doomed from the first euphoric kiss?
Hell Sulti is the epic love story of Marcy and Bryn, teenagers determined to live by a poetic, antiquated and entirely countercultural code of behaviour.
This feature length drama draws on the rich culture and aesthetics of goth. I’m fascinated by how goth, conjured out of the ether in 1979 by the band Bauhaus, still continues to confront mainstream values with its romantic rebel spirit, monochromatic flair and ‘memento mori’ iconography.
