London Short Film Festival logo

We are proud to announce that Memento Vitae, the first documentary from The Moirae Films, co-produced with Charlie Foxtrot Pictures and edited by Sue Outlaw at Films@59 in Bristol, has been selected for the London Short Film Festival.

Memento Vitae is a documentary short that paints a delicate and vibrant portrait of Patricia. It explores the human capacity to attach memory to the physical objects we collect and keep. Through this moving encounter we discover how love and loss can be held on to and contemplate the process of letting go.

An empty warehouse. Two young women have kidnapped a man. One woman is clearly having more fun than the other. As the pair wait for the right time to call in, the situation gets out of hand. What ensues is a dangerous power play between the two women that could easily escalate, with dramatic consequences.

Three people. One room. No winner.

Starring Charity Wakefield, Frances Millar and Endaf Eynon Davies
Directed by Darryl O’Donovan
Story by Erline O’Donovan
Produced by Helen Bolter

The Moirae Film

The Moirae is the first short film produced by our company and is the inspiration for the company’s name.

The Moirae are the Greek Goddesses of fate – they control the metaphorical thread of life of every mortal being from birth to death.

The film was shot in Yatton, in North Somerset, and on Pensford Viaduct.
