Martina features in powerful BFI funded short film 'Caterpillar'

Martina plays the role of Maggie in this dramatic and touching short-film. Maggie was once a dancer, but after receiving a diagnosis of MND she’s now paralysed and suffers from locked-in syndrome. Her daughter Ellis is her primary carer; who’s both ignited and beleaguered by the suffering she sees up close every day and reaches for more outside of her caregiver existence.

Written and directed by Dorny Sunday, the film was inspired by his experience working as a carer and explores the challenges people face trying to progress their own lives whilst having to care for someone else.
