The Subject: Welcome


Garden Gate Films 

A powerful story of love, ambition and control, THE SUBJECT charts a young artist's struggle to create the perfect piece of portraiture at a pivotal moment in her career.

Told with intimate, stunningly nuanced performances from a remarkable cast, Barker's exploration of the lies we tell to get what we want is unsettling and chilling in its honesty. An intensely personal portrayal of the desire for success, and the longing for love, THE SUBJECT is a beautiful piece of cinema that resonates with the contradictory truths of human nature.
