"A singular vision which could resonate with audiences with a taste for lurid cinematic mischief-making." Screen International
Give Me Pity! is director Amanda Kramer’s psychedelic, paranoid ode to musical divas of the 1970s and 1980s.
Sissy St. Claire (Sophie von Haselberg) graces the small screen for her first ever television special, an evening full of music and laughter, glamour and entertainment! But Sissy’s live event quickly begins to curdle into a psychedelic nightmare of vanity, insecurity and delusional ambition, provoked by the glowering presence of a mysterious masked man.
A wonderful blend of the psychedelic and character study, Sophie von Haselberg’s performance is deadly serious and deliriously silly in this campy, refreshing one-woman show.
