A fashion editor enters a photographic studio to direct a shoot. A traumatic event has occurred the night before, the details of which are fragmented and unclear.

As the editor processes her experience, she finds herself entering the room again and again, until the memory of her trauma starts to emerge in the body and performance of the model. 

"Intrusion" is the second short film from writer/director Ming-Zhu Hii. A stylish and subtle psychological thriller, it examines power and violence in the fashion world, and the obligations on women to perpetuate cycles of violence and objectification of their own and others' bodies.

"Intrusion" is now complete and will be seen at festivals in 2018. For more information on the film's status, please contact the producers
