THE BLOODY CHAMBER
The want to create a screen play adaptation of The Bloody Chamber was a result of my genuine appreciation of the piece as feminist literature and as a recognition of the possible dialogic processes the adaptation could generate for the story. The narrative of The Bloody Chamber related to me personally and I wanted to explore the ideas and emotions it evoked in me, through film making. It made me creatively excited through its presentation of ideas that a large demographic of female audiences could identify with.
The story resonates with a very real fear that I am never able to express other than though reading literature like that of The Bloody Chamber. The literature not only offers the ability to explore the themes of sex, violence and male power but also offers a fresh narrative take on an established idea.
An adaptation of The Bloody Chamber shows both commercial and critical promise, in so far as it has depth and meaning in its concept and so has the potential to transcend between mediums, capitalising and reinventing itself through contemporary technology
