Yellow Wallpaper

A curious woman is forced into the controversial rest cure by her doctor husband, where she goes mad. 

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 1892 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 the film. 

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

We're raising capital to finish post-production and submit to film festivals. Email us to discuss your opportunity for an EP credit on Yellow Wallpaper.
