Scene Unseen

An hour-long song-cycle weaves a path from cabaret artist Jessica Walker’s emotionally complex childhood right up to her very particular wedding day, with songs about early gender confusion, sexual assault, first love and betrayal and family secrets. It is a personal story with universal themes, expressed through Atkins and Walker’s musical mix of humour, classicism, torch and a touch of 'eighties synth.

Directed for film by James Dacre with illustrations by Thomas Hicks and cinematography by David Lefeber.
