The Springhead Film Company and Joker’s Pack Productions are proud to release drama short Soror via online distribution platform Findie.
Soror is a poignant drama that explores the lives and relationships of two half-sisters; Grace, insular and shy but a talented dancer; and Lisa, who dreams of escaping the confines of their upbringing. The close relationship shared by the sisters is the most important part of their lives; the only thing that truly means anything. But when life threatens to take them in separate directions, they must both find the strength to pursue their individual goals.
A Springhead Film Company and Joker’s Pack co-production, Soror was made in association with Zealous, Mini Productions, Sleepless Films and Findie.
Written and directed by James Webber, produced by Roxanne Holman and exec produced by John Jencks of The Electric Shadow Company (McQueen, The Hippopotamus). The film stars Rosie Day (The Seasoning House, Outlander), Sian Breckin (Tyrannosaur, Starred Up), James Alexandrou (Eastenders, Silent Witness) and double BAFTA winner Kate Dickie (Red Road, The Witch, Game of Thrones, Star Wars: Episode 8).
Soror marked the second major short film from The Springhead Film Company and writer/director James Webber, following on from the multi-award-winning BAFTA long-listed and Cannes ‘Coup de Coeur’ selected short Driftwood, starring Sam Gittins (Ripper Street, Howl) and Neil Maskell (Kill List, Utopia).
In 2015, Soror had its festival premiere at London Short Film Festival and was part of the Cannes Short Film Corner that year. The film was also officially selected for the British Urban and Portobello Film Festivals. In 2016 Soror won ‘Best Short Film’ at the Portsmouth International Film Festival.
