Synopsis

"It almost makes me cry to tell what foolish Harriet befell...."

Adapted from a traditional German fairy tale 'Harriet and the Matches' is a dark cautionary tale about a lonely little girl.

Featuring the vocal talents of CILLIAN MURPHY (The Dark Knight, Inception) and BERNICE STEGERS (Tipping the Velvet) as well as starring emerging talent HELENA BARLOW (Great Expectations, Harry Potter) 'Harriet and the Matches' mixes live action with puppetry and stop motion to create a visually stunning and atmospheric short film.
