THE SYCAMORE GAP

In 1841, Clara lives with her husband in Blackwood House. Mina, a maid who works in the household and Clara become involved in an on-going affair which is found out by her husband. She gives Mina an ultimatum which forces her to face harsh realities and make difficult choices. Mina is torn between logic and emotion. Despite using the backdrop of 1841, the film explores gender, sexuality and racial politics in a way that foregrounds the subconscious mentalities that are present in the current political climate. It shows power dynamics between different groups of people in ways that aren't overtly obvious.
