The Circle

Monday 25 August 2008

The new series of Coming Up , part of the Generation Next season, continues to showcase original drama from emerging film makers. Tonight, Sirjad, a deeply traumatised man, draws a circle around a derelict, deserted petrol station and decrees that within this boundary he cannot be touched. When a half-dead woman collapses on the edge of his circle, he takes her in to discover they are both running from the same thing: a terrible massacre. Coming Up continues on Wednesday with Thinspiration , a story about anorexia set in the 17th century.
