A short film following three intertwining stories and the marks we leave on each other’s lives.
Three stories. One painting. Ascent is a short film exploring the marks we leave on each other’s lives, and the desire to access something out of reach. The narrative follows the intertwining stories of characters Adam, a young man feeling the pressures of his work; Laura, an artist struggling to formulate her ideas onto the page; and Emma, a postgraduate undergoing counselling.
