About the project
LOCKLINEVictoria, a 27 year old escort, get pregnant due to sexual abuse of a customer, but uses this to leave her old life behind.

What is the film about?

Eliza is a film about a female bisexual couple. That is confronted with a unplanned pregnancy due to sexual violence. In the movie we follow Victoria. An elegant but dominant young woman at the end of her twenties. During her work as an escort, one of her customers crosses a line and sexually abuses her. Because of this, she locks herself mentally and emotionally up. But when her partner ‘Esmee’ finds her pregnancy test, she’s confronted with the hardest choice of her life.

Why are we making this film?

This story needs to be told because everyone has experienced a horrible situation in their lives. The passing of a family member, accidents or in this case abuse. In this moment we’re so focussed on the pain, that we don’t realise how much our friends and familly can support us. And that we, because of them and with them, become bigger and stronger than we ever could have been before we overcame the pain. We think that in these type of situations we’re on our own. And that the world can be a dark and dangerous place. When in reality, with your friend and familly, it’s often the opposite.

Why do we need the money?

In order to make the film believable, we need to rent and tailor some high end locations to our needs. 

This project is (partiallly) funded by Cultuurfonds Almere.
