Beyond the outstanding technical triumphs of Edicius lies a well-crafted and well-executed story. If your only criticism of a short film is that you want more – as was my case – then you can rest assured that you’ve seen something truly special. If you come across the opportunity to see Edicius, do so immediately.
‘The Tape’ is the debut feature film by Martha Tilston. Not only does the celebrated singer-songwriter write, direct and star in its gripping and surprising story, but she also recorded its stunning soundtrack live on set. This is believed to be a UK first for a non-concert film, and the only time this has been done at all since Robert Altman’s ‘Nashville’ in 1975. The film and soundtrack are both out now.
