Yellow Wallpaper

Period drama and psychological short film

Enjoyed the film? Consider supporting independent filmmaking.

In 1892, a woman suffering from postpartum depression is misdiagnosed with hysteria by her physician husband and forced to endure the controversial rest cure treatment, causing her to spiral into madness.

Yellow Wallpaper is a 19th century period drama and psychological thriller with Flamenco dance elements and a powerful message about women's rights. The short film was adapted from the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.


We aim for the film to start discussions around the traumatic and unspoken effects of postpartum depression and the medical maltreatment of women today. 

The film stars Marina Elana and Quenten Kirby. Elana is a professional Flamenco dance performer and the inspiration for this film. 

Yellow Wallpaper was  adapted and directed by Ricky Rhodes. Learn more about the director and the film in the Shoutout LA article
