We are super excited to announce that The Wall of Lyon will be showcased at LowDown, with a Q&A with its creator, director, composer and actor, Ashleigh Harley. The Wall of Lyon is the 1st part of fantasy saga The Messenger Cycle, that Ashleigh began writing at the age of 12.
The Wall of Lyon has already been officially selected for the festival in the Adult Fiction category by our judging panel of film industry professionals, and a public showcase of the film, as well as the opportunity to sit down for a Q&A with Ashleigh, is hugely exciting for us here at LowDown.
The Wall of Lyon’s synopsis is as such:
Divided from the truth by ancient, towering walls, and abused by the reign of an outdated society; outlandish fantasist ‘CASSINI’ seeks asylum in an unknown world beyond the man-made walls of an authoritarian regime.
Ashleigh has already received a BAFTA mentorship, been selected for a much sought-after place with the National Film and Television School, received an internship with the BBC, worked at Real World Studios, performed in dance on Channel 4 and began to shoot her directorial debut, so you can imagine how excited we are to be able to show her amazing film and have a chat with her about The Wall of Lyon, The Messenger Cycle, her music and her future projects.
Ashleigh has, as already mentioned, created the music for The Wall of Lyon as well, and the main song from the film, Judge Me, has already been a big hit on iTunes and download charts. You can watch the video here and download the single here.
The opportunity to sit down with such a huge talent; both infront of the camera and behind, is one not to be missed by anyone who has a passion for writing, directing and composing soundtracks, and Ashleigh is most certainly one to watch for the future, and we are very lucky to have her joining us for the festival. Don’t miss the chance to see The Wall of Lyon and talk to Ashleigh about all aspects that she has covered in it. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
Join Ashleigh at The Lowdown Film Festival, September 2018
