Dr Craine’s Body
“That only in death would their lives be considered.”
A story about the destabilising nature of love. A scrutiny of society and life through the lens of death. An absorbing, unsettling portrait of a fractured psyche. A beautiful yet haunting subversion of the romance genre.
Dr Craine’s Body follows a gifted yet deeply unorthodox medical examiner as he battles with his unrequited feelings for a colleague, feelings that burn so fiercely they threaten to destroy his very being.
Constructed through innovative storytelling and jolting plot developments, British writer Khalid Patel skilfully blends beauty and horror in Dr Craine’s Body to produce a stark short that defies convention and arrests throughout.
