A WOMAN WALKS INTO A BANK (2019)

dir. Tom Brennan

I played a member of an anti-capitalist criminal gang in this surreal short film.

This is the first film project I’ve done! I’d love to do more.

A Woman Walks into a Bank is about a young woman’s journey from normality to extremism and back again. The film is told through increasingly elaborate crime scene reconstructions, pretentious drama exercises, finger-gun shoot-outs and interpretative dance.

Inspired by the Patty Hearst kidnapping, this form-bending short provokes discussion about the nature of belief.
