The trailer for a short film shot on the Isle of Wight, and starring Toyah Willcox, has been released.

Weightless is produced by Ventnor resident Rowena Amos and her film company 9 of Cups Productions.

It was recorded on the Island last year, with Toyah spotted filming on beaches in Freshwater and Ventnor.

The film has a host of well-known Isle of Wight names attached to it, including stills photographer Gianpaolo Mario Giancovich, musician JC Grimshaw, and Angelina Grimshaw working with the crew on costumes.

Music for the film has been provided by King Crimson musician and Toyah's husband, Robert Fripp. The pair have recently been announced for Isle of Wight Festival 2023.

The story follows Maureen (Willcox) - a woman alone on a beach facing down her demons and struggling with self-acceptance, as she enters the water. 

It’s a personal theme for writer Louise Monaghan, a Lewes-based playwright, who was anorexic as a younger woman.

The script for Weightless has already won awards, including the 2021 London Story Prize.

Due to international film festival restrictions, there will be a short wait before the film is released in the UK.
