A pulpy, retrofuturistic sci-fi inspired by the emotional & physical toll from years of struggling with infertility.

Director’s Vision

A harvester must safely carry her eggs across a difficult and threatening landscape.

My most personal film to date, To Carry Underneath, tackles the grief, heartache, the emotional and physical toll from years of struggling with infertility, all seen through a pulpy, gritty retro-futuristic lens. Taking inspiration from silent film, I chose to have no dialogue and to focus on the actress’s eyes and her performance to convey the emotional journey. All while using a combination of practical and visual effects to create a fantastical world one might have seen illustrated on the covers of sci-fi novels from the 1970s.
