'The World Can Wait' - a parody of the lesbian death trope

Deborah Espect, Brighton-based film maker is releasing her latest production, via Moggy Productions at 2pm on Sunday 25 February 2018.

Whilst we are used to the usual girl meets girl stories, Deborah is offering us something different with The World Can Wait, a comedy with a difference.

Speaking to Deborah, she said:

"Too many fictional LGBTQ+ characters, especially women, are unnecessarily killed off in TV shows. We deserve happy ends."

The World Can Wait screenshotSo what is The World Can Wait about?

Vic is a popular lesbian character in a hit television series. Her mission: to save humanity against evil. But when the TV Executives in charge of the show gather to decide her fate, she finds herself having to fight for her survival.

The World Can Wait is a comedic, and political take on the lesbian death trope.

An 8 minute short film, released on YouTube on Sunday 25 February at 2pm. Set your clocks now!
