Letters to… Women of the Future film

“To give you advice for the future would be for a future I don’t know, for a life I haven’t lived.”

To celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day, Stellar Quines invited submissions to our regular creative writing opportunity Letters to… This time in response to the provocation ‘Women of the Future’. We received dozens of letters, many reaching out to future generations, some apologising for the climate disaster and others with a pertinent call to arms to ensure future generations of women don’t experience the same levels of inequality as we currently do.

The chosen letter, written by Jassy Earl, is an intimate and familial letter. ‘To Isobelle…’ is a beautiful and poignant portrayal of a relationship changing through age.

Filmed by Aly Wight, directed by Shilpa T-Hyland and performed by Nalini Chetty.
