Antelope

Synopsis

After being released from hospital, a conflicted twenty-something struggles to reconnect with her family following a failed suicide attempt.

About Antelope

‘Antelope’ is a short film based on writer/director Ben Grace's experience of being sectioned at Antelope House after a suicide attempt in 2012, and his struggles to re-establish relationships with his family after being released.

Ben Grace worked with local NHS providers to ensure that this film was an accurate representation of mental health services in Southampton. With the permission of Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, he filmed the opening scenes inside Antelope House, the secure PICU (Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit) he recovered at in 2012. This film has the full blessing of local NHS service providers.

Antelope is currently in post-production, with a premiere expected to be announced in summer 2017.
