The Muse

Written and Directed by Wanda Nolan

Produced by Liz Cowie

The Muse is a cross-cultural, cross-generational story about an unlikely relationship between a young Chinese fine art photographer, Ting Ting Chen, and her muse and best friend, septuagenarian Newfoundlander, Robert Tilley. The Muse turns the idea of the classic muse (and male gaze) on its head, proving that inspiration can be found in the most surprising of places.
