Gorgeous Labour of Love is a surreal short film set in the ruins of London, driven by a contemporary music-hall libretto. The film contrasts the beautiful and grotesque in a narrative focusing on the universal question - are our lives driven by destiny or chance? This first directing effort by Stacy Harrison utilizes lavish costumes & breathtaking historical English architecture to paint a sweeping painting of a little film. This powerful melodramatic short narrative embodies key aspects of the classic Gothic tale, with echoes of Du Maurier's Trilby and Le Fanu's dark stories. The mystery of the 'true' nightmare of the narrative is left to the viewer to decide.
