A portrait of actor Rupert Procter in the role of Clinic, from Owen Tooth's 2007 film The Opening which Emma collaborated on and appears in. Eagle-eyed viewers may even spot some of her paintings in the film.
"Clinic is the voiceless protagonist in this dark fairytale," (ImagineFX Aug 2008) and much of the film was shot inside derelict buildings, where the dust mingled with rusty paint cans and crumbling distempered walls, providing a stark contrast with his vulnerable flesh.
"I take great comfort in seeing nature coming in and dismantling human creations; seeing the bricks become dust and the plants breaking through the tarmac. 'Over your cities grass will grow'".
