Logline: On the battlefield, blood will flow…

Elevator Pitch:

Two women solders are about to fight a skirmish with an invading force; but they’re also having a heated argument about body functions that are hard to avoid. They have to battle the enemy, and each other, and the blood doesn’t stop.

Production Team:

Director & Writer: Shelagh Rowan-Legg
Producers: Alexandra Bentley & Jen Handorf

About the Film:

“Flow” is a story inspired by the great kick-ass heroines of genre film (Ripley, Sarah Conner, Zoe from “Firefly”, Brienne of Tarth, to name a few), and the work of amazing filmmakers such as Gareth Evans, Kathryn Bigelow, Lexi Alexander, and Joss Whedon. It’s also inspired by the desire to talk about women’s bodies in an action film context, from a woman’s perspective, and to make it both comic and satirical.

Current Status: Currently fundraising.
