Plant Fetish is written and performed by Chanje Kunda, re-imagined for camera by film director Juliet Ellis. The film is a dark satirical comedy. A black woman living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder discovered that plants reduce stress. Think ‘After life’ by Ricky Gervais meets Love Island, via Gardeners’ World. 

Chanje was suffering with stress and anxiety when she first discovered that plants soothe the soul. She then learnt that some women in Mexico, fed up with men, were getting married to trees. Trees aren’t very talkative, but they are tall, do great things for the planet, and are renowned for their wood. Chanje was inspired and surrendered to this notion. She fell in love with plants. The pressures of life drifted away. 

In the film, there will be music, and movement combined with dramatic narrative and metaphors of seeds, growth and renewal.
