WHO WE ARE

Our mission is to tell stories that convey humanity.

 

The Recluse goal is to showcase the truth and diversity of the human condition by using the many art forms within filmmaking and by collaborating with artists around the globe.

For many years the voices of women, LGBTQ and otherwise, have been silenced and ignored. They have been misrepresented with stereotypes and a simplicity that many of us have found disheartening.

 

At Recluse Films, we collaborate with women filmmakers, artists, producers, and writers, to create motion pictures that embolden our stories and highlight the importance of our culture.

We are creative. We are innovative. We have heart.

ROAD OF BYGONES

Three women embark on a road trip to retrieve the ashes of a figure from the past. Throughout their journey, they struggle with their odd dynamic and are forced to confront the taboo that is their past and present. ​ "Road of Bygones" is a glimpse into the reality of a lesbian D/s relationship and the search for acceptance from those who we adore.

 

This feature-length film features the talent of Cinematographer Valentina Caniglia.

Starring Oriana Oppice, Astrid Ovalles, Sarah Jo, and Suzanne Sadler
