  • (1888PressRelease) October 12, 2017 - The Refuge tells the story of a women’s aid centre where four girls are living in an isolated fortress gatehouse and forced to take an antidepressant treatment.

    Maria Millan is a London-based image maker originally from Venezuela. Maria’s talent lies in breath-takingingly beautiful storytelling, as she utilises the subtle art of tension. Her fashion videos and pictures effortlessly bring buried emotion and sentiment to the surface. You can find her intriguing work in Vogue, Jute, Fruk and Ellements Magazine amongst others.

    This film is no documentary, Maria stays true to her love of fashion and aesthetics as she enchants her audience with a film where every still could be found in the centrefold of a high-fashion magazine. Her playful use of colour and texture creates a beautiful world that engages the spectator with the intense story that lies beneath the sublime and striking surface.

    Tackling gender disparity in an often-frightening world dictated by money and male ego, The Refuge holds a mirror to the contemporary misogyny that is having tragic implications on real lives.
