SWEET POTATO, 5min., UK, Romance/Drama
Directed by Evie Ayres-Townshend
Sweet Potato is a story of discovering how we want to be loved. Emilia’s relationship with Tarron is fiery and hot, but is it quite right? When her female friend, Sam, opens Emilia’s eyes to acts of love and tentativeness she’s not experienced before, what she wants from relationships is called into question. Fragments of memory are intertwined and battle one another as Emilia enters an inner conflict that sings of the early twenties experience and a young woman’s first steps of queer discovery.
