Andros a graduation short from the Kinoeyes European Masters filmmaking programme recently premiered at the Korea Queer Film Festival in South Korea in June. It was also selected to Short Film Cup.
Andros, is an ambitious short film by students from the Kinoeyes European Master’s programme (KEM2) at Edinburgh Napier University which was shot on location on the island of Easdale, in Scotland in 2018. Easdale is one of the Slate Islands in the Firth of Lorne. Once at the centre of the Scottish slate industry, it is now home to a small community of approximately 50 people. Easdale proved perfect for the shoot, as it has the required impression of remoteness, and the contrast of its pristine white houses and black slate rocks are a cinematographic dream.
A love story, Andros deals with themes of gender identity, belonging, and young love telling the story of an androgynous teenage girl who must hide the fact she’s different from the other women to remain accepted in their matriarchal world.
Congratulations to all!
Kinoeyes is a two year European Masters degree in film, funded by Erasmus + and run as a partnership between Lusofona University in Lisbon (Portugal), the Baltic Film and Media School at Tallinn University (Estonia) and Screen Academy Scotland at Edinburgh Napier University (Scotland/UK).
