Period poverty awareness film 'Absent' highlights the taboo and shame still presented around periods
Group_3646

Global production company Dog Eat Dog is celebrating their win at the prestigious Gerety awards this year for short film ‘Absent’, with rising director Libby Burke Wilde. The film won in the health category and was one of just three pieces of work chosen for gold.

The Gerety awards reward only the highest quality international advertising through a unique judging system and an exclusively female jury.

In the same weekend, Absent won ‘Best Film For Change’ at Bolton International Film Festival, and, since its release on Dazed in November 2019 has picked up multiple awards - including the recent film category bronze at the Kinsale Shark awards last month. Previous wins also include Berlin Commercial, One Show and Young Director Award.

Written by Lucy MacCarthy and directed by Libby Burke Wilde, the film’s desirable cast include Imogen King ('The Bay', 'Darkest Hour'), Kaine Zajaz ('Kiri', 'Raised by Wolves') and Lucy Thackeray ('New Tricks', 'Don't Forget the Driver', 'Hatton Garden'). 

‘Absent’, funded and produced by Dog Eat Dog, was commissioned by UK-based period poverty charity Freedom4Girls to highlight the taboo and shame still present around periods. 

Since its inception in 2018, Dog Eat Dog has been building a film fund to develop and produce films of their choosing, globally, and the producer-led company are going into prep on feature film ‘Jericho Ridge’ early next year.

Additionally, they have recently signed a selection of new directors, including Marc Bethke, Sheridan De Myers (Writer and Director of hit YouTube drama ‘The ReUp’) and world-renowned fashion, beauty and celebrity Photographer & Filmmaker, Dean Freeman.

Their Berlin office is also now fully up and running, welcoming productions from clients who need to work in both Germany and the UK with the ease of using one production partner and the resulting cost savings.
