Filmed at the end of London's COVID-19 lockdown, Contact explores the vulnerability, loneliness and anxiety felt by so many young people during the period.

Sadie Frost has over three decades experience in film, theatre and television. As an actor Sadie starred in globally acclaimed films such as Francis Ford Coppola’s BRAM STOKER’S DRACULA alongside Keanu Reeves, Gary Oldman and Winona Ryder, and heavyweight television dramas such as Jon Avnet’s UPRISING. As a fledgling producer, Sadie set up production company Natural Nylon with fellow actors Jude Law, Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller, which went on to make EXISTENZ, NORA, XX/XY, TO KILL A KING, OWNING MAHOWNY and SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW. After this success, Sadie went on to co-found Blonde to Black to develop more diverse and challenging projects while helping to nurture exciting new talent.

Since then she has directed two more shorts and is currently directing a documentary about the iconic British fashion designer Mary Quant.
