The Comfortable Tenant

Imagine is you woke up one night to find a wide-eyed, grinning demon staring at you. And imagine if that demon turned out to be exactly what you’d been waiting for.

Disembark

Welcome to the Dead Space. No one knows where it is. No one knows how you get in. But the residents are desperately trying to get out. But residents must fulfil a bizarre clause, overseen by two strict judges. Today’s the day that Mandy finally gets to fight their case. And hopefully escape whatever is behind the wooden door….

Disembark is the sixth Short Film by drag artist Mandy Sweats. Finalising their Isolation series, Disembark tackles the mix of fear and excitement, nerves and anxiety of jettisoning from isolation. Are we prepared for the outside world? Have we dealt with our fears from before, or merely pushed them down? Disembark tackles these questions in Mandy’s signature surreal, darkly comic style.

Made entirely by the artist.

For Sale

“This is a lovely little property sir, with huge amounts of promise, that just needs to be…whipped into shape”

Mandy is the third most successful realtor at Bottom Drawer estate agencies (though she was voted most likely to win a hotdog eating contest at the staff Christmas do). She is very excited to be exhibiting this new property on the market, all from the comfort of her basement. But her clients may be delving into a world far more nightmarish than they could have possibly imagined.

For Sale is the fifth short film by drag artist and queer filmmaker Mandy Sweats. It is a surreal, pitch-black horror-comedy about the fine line between image and reality, pride and vanity, and selling yourself and selling out.

This film was originally submitted to Luna’s Drag Macabre Season 1: Inner Demons. A huge thank you to Luna Lestrange and the whole LDM team for allowing me a platform to debut this performance.

Inspired by horror films such as The Blair Witch Project, The Poughkeepsie Tapes and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, ‘The Bedsit Tapes’ is a darkly comedic reflection on a life lived within 4 very small walls.
