News: Richard Herring/Rachel Stubbings Film Wins Award

A British independent short film starring comedians Richard Herring and Rachel Stubbings has won an award at a Paris Film Festival.

While You Were Away, directed by Ben Mallaby and written by Gabriel Miller, picked up the Audience Award at ECU 2016.

The dark comedy with a twist tells the story of Mark (Herring) and Susan (Stubbings) who outwardly seem like a typical happily married couple. But when Susan goes on a trip to Bristol Mark does something dramatic that threatens to change their relationship forever. Interestingly it may have appealed to French audiences because coincidentally Gerard Depardieu once made an acclaimed movie featuring a similar incident.

Watch the five minute film below.
