    Video Clip: (1min 11secs)


    London, 1974. As Britain prepares for electrical blackouts to sweep
    across the country, trainee nurse Val (Rose Williams) arrives for
    her first day at the crumbling East London Royal Infirmary. With
    most of the patients and staff evacuated to another hospital, Val
    is forced to work the night shift, finding herself in a dark, near
    empty building. Within these walls lies a deadly secret, forcing
    Val to face both her own traumatic past and deepest fears in order
    to confront the malevolent force that's intent on destroying
    everything around her.

    "While I was writing the script, I read a good description of what
    a ghost story classically is: a disturbed spirit has an issue that
    a protagonist, usually female, needs to understand and solve,"
    Corinna Faith said in a statement. "Then the spirit can rest in
    peace. This description resonated with me. I was already telling
    the story from a female point of view, and wanted the female
    experience to inform the horror elements. But I was writing during
    the explosion of resistance to silence and passivity that came with
    the Me Too movement. And it felt like the landscape was changing to
    some extent. The idea that an angry spirit could neatly be put to
    rest, made quiet at the end of a story, felt plain wrong. This gave
    me an interesting trajectory. I realized while we were filming that
    we were telling a story about the silence of girls. Voices made
    quiet. Then I realized, that without planning, I was telling the
    story of my journey to that moment too. It had taken many years,
    and changes in my own confidence and the confidence of the industry
    to get there. To allow my own voice to speak. Like the restless
    spirit, I've no intention of laying it to rest now."

    The film stars Rose Williams, Shakira Rahman, Charlie Carrick,
    Diveen Henry, Gbemisola Ikumelo, Nuala McGowan, Emma Rigby and Theo

    Playing on our universal fear of the dark, The Power is a chilling
    supernatural thriller from BAFTA-nominated writer-director Corinna
    Faith and produced by Matthew James Wilkinson of Stigma Films and
    Rob Watson of Air Street Films.
