FAIRHOLME FILMS PRESENTS:
GUESS WHERE I AM
A short film by Andrew Spicer
A young man’s recent transgressions are unravelled when he finds himself trapped underground with only a strangely inquisitive train driver for company. Guess Where I Am is an uncompromising reflection on the profound and horrifying consequences of cardinal sin according to Catholic doctrine.
An unsettling, allegorical thriller, Guess Where I Am centres on William, a young Catholic man who, after months apart, is reaching the end of a long journey to see his new wife. At London’s King’s Cross Station, he boards an Underground train and falls asleep. When he awakes, he finds his reality is not quite as he left it. Trapped deep underground, with only a strangely inquisitive Tube driver for company, Guess Where I Am unravels William’s hazy recollections of a night flight, a book and a mysterious, seductive stranger.
The themes of Guess Where I Am are inspired by his passion for dissecting the human condition and his love of dark, disquieting drama, coupled with the storytelling power of modern parables such as Black Mirror. But rather looking into the future, he looks to the past and to a specific medieval ideology that still persists throughout the societies and religions of today. Guess Where I Am is designed to leave questions unanswered, with space for interpretation and reflection on the nature of William’s reality and its relevance to our own.
