Electricity

2014, 96 minutes

When Lily O'Connor, a witty, sexy, searingly defiant Northerner with temporal lobe epilepsy and a traumatic past finds out that the brother she's long thought dead could still be alive, she risks her life to go in search of him. Like THE DIVING BELL & THE BUTTERFLY, ELECTRICITY is a journey through the real world and through the wildly hallucinatory, disturbing inner world of epilepsy. Lily sees everything in terms of angles: you look at every surface, weigh up every corner and think of your head slamming into it. Her epilepsy summons flashbacks, spectral figures, even birds emerging from her throat. And in the wrong place at the wrong time it can kill her. As Lily abandons her safe routine in a seaside town and delves into the treacherous underbelly of London she takes us on a deeply moving, uplifting but increasingly frightening trip that really is like nothing you've seen before. Will Lily's bravery help her connect her past and her future - or will she die trying?
