Make Me Up

Acclaimed Scottish multimedia artist Rachel Maclean delivers a bold, glossy and powerful debut art drama about the role of women in society and how they have been depicted in art and art history. Marking 100 years of women’s suffrage, the film blends comedy and subversive drama filtered through Mac, Lean’s surreal and pop-coloured aesthetic. The film imagines a dystopian future where a group of women are trapped in a glossy TV-style competition overseen by the Figurehead, who speaks only in the voice and words of Kenneth Clark from Civilisation (1969).
