The Quickener is a short film set in the Midlands during the first month of the Black Death’s visit to England. It was shot in 2012 and 2013.
In certain respects it’s a classic narrative. However using rap lyricism, sudden bursts of assonance and a strange rainbow of rhyme schemes all within a medieval story makes this film distinct.
The Quickener is a part of a new wave of positive, imaginative, hip-hop film experiments which aims to impact a broad audience.
