Corinna Faith made a statement about her film – “I realised while we were filming that we were telling a story about the silence of girls. Voices made quiet. Then I realised, that without planning, I was telling the story of my journey to that moment too. It had taken many years, and changes in my own confidence and the confidence of the industry to get there. To allow my own voice to speak. Like the restless spirit, I’ve no intention of laying it to rest now.”
