"A Headline Romance" posits a London romance between a Palestinian girl and her Jewish musician boyfriend. The relationship isn't going too well when Luma makes a startling discovery. She finds out that her romance is being reported upon in the news only told between the Israelis and Palesinians. Slowly she becomes
obsessed and realizes that the news is essentially forecasting her love life; every suicide bombing,
every house demolished mirrored in their fights with one another. As the relationship degrades, she begins praying for the peace process to work in the hopes that it might salvage their own love life.
The film is a 15 minute short to be shot on Super16 for 9 days between the 22nd of September the 5th of
October. As this is a student outfit, we can only pay expenses- however as this is our final film (and
particularly because of the subject matter), it will be part of the Goldsmiths showreel and we will get it
into all the festivals we can.
A diary of the preproduction is available on aheadlineromance.blogspot.com
