The invisible woman.

by Andrew MacGregor

Short Films: “Invisible” - 11 mins 23s

In the parlance of Monty Python, this diverting short film demonstrates the value of not being seen. Sue (Athene Parker) wanders through life practically - you guessed it - invisible to those around her.

Pedestrians, workmen, and colleagues remain oblivious to her existence. Every cloud has a silver lining, however - and this is a particularly lucrative one.

Sue makes a killing in plain sight. Before long, her stash allows her to pay a visit to her local plastic surgeon. You'll never look at Henry the Hoover the same way again.

The protagonist's gradual transformation - enhanced by some nifty prosthetics work - culminates in a satisfying pay-off. A wry and engaging commentary on society's selective vision.
