On Wednesday 26th February Cerno Capital hosted a screening of ‘Close’, followed by Q&A with the director Vicky Jewson, at The Soho Hotel.

Vicky has quickly gained recognition for captivating audiences with compelling female narratives. Her desire to bring more authentic female characters to the action genre was the inspiration for her latest feature film.

‘Close’ is an action thriller, based on of the world’s leading female bodyguards, Jacquie Davis. The film follows battle-hardened bodyguard Sam who, when attackers target the heiress she’s protecting, must scramble to save her client — and teach her how to fight back.

In the Q&A following the film, Vicky explained her processes and inspiration behind the project, as well as detailing some of her further upcoming work, which we look forward to following with great interest.

Photos from the evening are available on our Flickr account here, and ‘Close’ is available to screen on Netflix here.
