‘Masks’ is an independent feature film project. The exhibition revolves around artistic photography, captured by London-based photographer Amy Astor-Lewis. In line with the themes of the film, the photographs explore the human desire for intimacy, as well as the characters' protective façades. As depiction of contemporary life, 'Masks' explores the poignant and vibrant topics of identity, sexual orientation and gender dynamics. As a female-driven feature project, they hope to contribute to both the flourishing presence of women in filmmaking, and the representation of feminist and LGBTQ narratives on screen.
