Deep Pockets Empty Hearts

Short Film

Executive Producer / Writer / Director : Alessia Francischiello

Cinematographer : Kupa Warner

After a life-changing mission trip, April returns to Sydney full of hope – only to discover that the grind of city life brings her nothing but loneliness and her once-close friends seem to be hiding something from her…

Set in Sydney, this magical-realism drama, tells the story of April – an endearing 30yo woman, struggling to break out of society’s cookie-cutter mould for success and happiness. Deep Pockets, Empty Hearts is a journey into self-discovery and self-acceptance. A film dedicated to anyone who feels disconnected from modern society and from themselves. It’s about finding new perspectives of life and appreciating what is really important to us as human beings: the freedom to be ourselves.
