Pink is a short film about old age and remembering the lives we’ve lived. About love and the moments in time that stay with us forever. Set in both present-day United Kingdom and 1940s Iran, Pink explores the secrets of a Grandmother and a life seemingly forgotten.
Thanks to a Raw Film Commission from Exeter Phoenix Pink was shot over summer 2016.
