Signe and Thomas are in an unhealthy, competitive relationship that takes a vicious turn when Thomas suddenly breaks through as a contemporary artist. In response, Signe makes a desperate attempt to regain her status by creating a new persona hell-bent on attracting attention and sympathy.
The Garden Cinema View:
Sick of Myself is the best satire that has come our way in a while. A deadpan, intelligent comedy that pokes fun at the attention-seeking zeitgeist and challenges stereotypical perceptions of narcissism. As good satires do, it serves as a mirror to unpleasant aspects of our personalities, such as ableism, toxic positivity, and fake empathy. It features an excellent script, elliptical dialogue, and stellar performances. Did we mention it's really funny?
The short film BLEEP will be screened before Sick of Myself.
Winner of the Audience Favourite Award at the EFN Short Film Festival 2022 and will screen at The Garden Cinema as part of its rewards.
BLEEP by Ben S. Hyland, 15min
A bickering couple, stuck on the same nightly argument, must unite to find a mysterious noise that's woken them from their slumber.
