May, 2016.

This week Ben, our Producer, is in Cannes and looking to connect with distribution companies.

We have now, with thanks Invest Northern Counties, officially entered the development stage of production, for 'Seeing Rachel'.

Seeing Rachel now has a Casting Director attached and we are getting excited about working with Kristina. The script is out to a potential attachment and we are awaiting feedback.

The film is a psychological drama about human trafficking and organised crime, to be filmed in Bristol. It will feature very determined female characters as a foil to this male demand-led trade in humanity. We're working with a Bristol-based Record Company and musicians for the soundtrack.

Handy Cloud Productions was set up in December 2008. Our film, 'My Name Is Sorrow' is an intense and intimate human trafficking drama and was Premièred at Bristol's celebrated Mshed on the historic Harbourside, in June 2012.

HCP was set up to create new stories which departed from the British obsession with social realism, to create a more transcendental (Arthouse) style. (That is Arthouse with a social conscience.) I am mindful of Robert Bresson's aphorism, 'realism, the vulgar imitation of nature' and so wanted to create a personal story which focused on an inner journey and not the sensationalised drama of rape, physical abuse and betrayal.
