Feature Script in Development

front_for_web

Eelyn Lee is currently writing a feature length screenplay, Ice which she intends to direct. The script recently attracted some interest at this year's Cannes Film Festival and we are continuing to explore the possibilities of future collaborations with producers and other production companies.

Based on an original idea, Ice is a black comedy thriller set in a heat wave in 90’s London....

On the run from a violent gang, Jemel has little value for human life but when he is forced to seek refuge with an old man self-taught in cryonics he finds himself learning the art and science of freezing bodies in liquid nitrogen before taking on the mission of bringing a loved one back to life.
