Absolutely astonishing acting in David Bartlett’s Live Action Short Film MOUSIE

Mousie, a period drama follows Helene a 7 year old Roma refugee who is discovered by the Nazi’s in Berlin 1936 as they clear the streets of “undeserirables”, however is protected by her guardian angel Katharina who plans to runaway to America with her – where everyone is welcome, no matter the colour of their skin.

Director David Bartlett and Producer Will Poole created the award winning and poignant short film Mousie with Derek Jacobi (The King’s Speech/The Crown) as Executive Producer.

Absolutely astonishing acting from Sasha Watson-Lobo who plays Helene at only the age of 7!  CJ Johnson plays Katharina, who is essentially Helene’s guardian angel and the only hope for her safety.

The costumes and set design featured in Mousie really set the scene and make you feel immersed, almost in awe like a little mouse. You almost relate to Helene’s fascination with the world she’s been put in. 

Mousie has screened at include the Dublin International Film Festival, the Miami Jewish Film Festival and the Woods Hole Film Festival where it received the Best Youth Performance Award as well as others.
