Talking 'Wish Hill' with Aleah Marrow

Season 3, Episode 12,   Oct 30, 2023, 05:48 PM

Nigel talks to first time filmmaker Aleah Marrow, whose beautiful film Wish Hill we discovered at last year's Aesthetica Film Festival.

Wish Hill is an adventure story and a dream-like meditation on mortality, following two brothers conflicted with life's chaos. At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, they set out on a secret adventure to a place where it is believed wishes come true.

Nigel and Aleah explore the path from Aleah's professional tennis career through to her unexpected gearshift into filmmaking. We also dive into the difficulties of making a short film during the pandemic and the paths to success for filmmakers emerging onto the festival scene today.
