Background

Casting Fu Manchu continues Eelyn’s body of work around monster, fear and ‘othering’. In 2014 Eelyn began The Monster Trilogy [2014 - present], a body of work exploring the notion, we create our own monsters from fear. Taking Shelley’s Frankenstein as a starting point, Eelyn made two short films exploring how a small estuarine community responds to the arrival of a stranger. Monster [2015] and Creature of the Estuary [2016] were supported by Barbican, Arts Council England and Metal. Creature of the Estuary premiered at the inaugural Estuary festival in 2016.
