"Luana Di Pasquale’s treatment of domestic drama in KEEP MUM is

at once thorough and fresh. Watch out for her!

- Marco Valerio Pugini, Panorama Films

"KEEP MUM is a masterly debut film from Luana Di Pasquale.

A brooding, sometimes shocking work, it casts an intense gaze on 

domestic trauma of an especially dark nature. A Great work."

Chris Salewiz, journalist, broadcaster and novelist

"KEEP MUM packs a punch delivering a brutal snapshot of a mother pushed beyond the edge - the production values are great, as is the lead performance -

the music, sound mix and slick title - Luana has done a great job

with modest means and a slender team"

Daniel Konrad Cooper, Rather Good Films

"Writer/Director Luana Di Pasquale's new short KEEP MUM is a fantastic example of British indie horror done right. Check out @angryscotsman81 review of @keepmumfilm and how she tackles a story rooted in the very real horrors of domestic violence"
