The project’s name, "Her Flesh Is Mine," refers to the thematic ties between three short films centered around the question: How does female physicality impact female psychology? In other words, how do the bodies we live in determine how we perceive ourselves and shape our relationships with others? These dark stories with a fantasy-flare ultimately explore different manifestations of guilt from a female perspective. Shot on a shoe-string budget with 8 principle photography hours for each film in Eugene, OR, late 2017.
Written, Produced and Directed by Jordyn Roach.
