Having devoured rom-coms as a young teen into womanhood, they have played a leading role in the formation of director Elizabeth Sankey’s identity, and fantasies of love.
How does Hollywood dictate what love looks like and who deserves it?
In this vibrant essay film – a film about films, for film-lovers – Sankey considers the rules of the game and how the formula has transformed over time.
This screening will be presented with the world premiere of a live score from director Elizabeth Sankey’s band, Summer Camp. The film will also be screened on Monday 10th June without live score.
This film is one of our Sheffield Doc/Fest 2019 picks.
