Dear Russell

A short memo to Russell Brand- a reflection on what it feels like to be a woman in Brittan in 2017. Created from letters written by female members of the British public, this short video explores links between gender and identity. How do modern British women feel? Do female representations in the media reflect the truth? Does equality exist? Let’s see what these women think. A brief look in to minds of a few British women. An exploration of modern female identity via letters to famous British comedian, actor, author, sex icon, activist and well known public figure Russell Brand. A memoire on equality and femininity, with a nod to the worship of celebrity as a new religion. Three short monologues from three different women, discussing topics from politics to mental health, this work addresses issues in our culture that need to be talked about in a direct and real way.
