Directed and Designed by Charlotte Vincent Cinematographer / Editor Bosie Vincent Composer Jules Maxwell

Charlotte Vincent’s VIRGIN TERRITORY takes an uncompromising look at our hyper- sexualised culture and the impact digital culture is having on girls and young women growing up today.

We all want to be ‘liked’ and ‘followed’, but what effect does constantly performing for the camera have on our sense of self-worth?

VIRGIN TERRITORY is a multi‐layered film installation, performed by four children aged 12‐ 14 and four adults, with real‐life testimonies, stunning cinematography and bold performances screened across five large televisions mounted on school benches.

With moving, resilient performances at its core, VIRGIN TERRITORY asks vital questions about responsibility as we witness children playing in an adult online world.
