Kris Mrksa’s ‘Requiem’ begins filming
Filming has commenced in Wales on Kris’ 6×60 minute psychological thriller series, Requiem.
Directed solely by Mahalia Belo and written by Kris (episodes 1-4 and 6) and Blake Ayshford (episode 5), Requiem is a taut psychological thriller with subtle supernatural undertones, it avoids giving easy answers, playing instead on uncertainty and ambiguity, while interrogating our contemporary obsession with personal identity.
We all think we want to find out who we really are, but what if we don’t like the answer?
In 1994, a toddler disappears from a small Welsh town, never to be seen again. 23 years later, a talented young cellist’s life is turned upside down by her mother’s inexplicable suicide. In the wake of the tragedy, she begins to question everything she thought she knew about herself, embarking on a quest that leads her to that Welsh village. A place haunted by its own past, where the secrets she uncovers threaten to unravel her very identity.
The series is produced by Sue Breen and executive produced by Willow Grylls, Elaine Pyke and Charlie Pattinson for New Pictures, Kris Mrksa and Christopher Aird for BBC.
