“In Secretion the couple repress the troubles in their marriage to such a point it begins to erupt and spread in the fabric of the family home. The oppressive dripping ceiling, that gets increasingly more grotesque, plagues them throughout their monotonous, daily routines and is the result of their reluctance to acknowledge it and the state of their marriage. It is the Damocles Sword that is just waiting to drop. Although Secretion is uncanny it is actually very relatable to us all and hopefully its message will resonate with everyone who see is...” Writer/director - Sarah Talbot.
