We are pleased to announce Susan Young will be presenting her film Betrayal as part of the evening showcase.

Susan Young is a BAFTA-nominated animation director based in London and currently researching animation and psychological trauma at The Royal College of Art. Carnival, her Royal College of Art graduation film, features the fluid, dynamic line that defines her commercial work. Commissioned films include The Doomsday Clock, a film about multilateral disarmament for the United Nations, Beleza Tropical: Umbabarauma, for musician David Byrne, and Jimi Hendrix: Fire, for producer Alan Douglas.

Susan’s films, titles, promos and commercials have been screened worldwide and she has served on several international animation festival juries. In 1997 she sustained an overwork-related injury which curtailed her career, but she has recently returned to the Royal College of Art where she is researching animation’s capacity as a medium for bearing witness to trauma by using autobiographical material to create a trilogy of film experiments while exploring new animation techniques.

Synopsis: A patient, trapped in a terrifying relationship with her megalomaniac doctor, resorts to desperate measures to escape.
