Rosa Truelove Films a New Kind of Period Drama

Rose Truelove's debut short film, Blood Warriors, is a statement against the silence and shame that surrounds menstruation.

1st January 2021 saw the UK finally remove tax from sanitary products. In celebration of this moment, we joyfully share with you Rose Truelove's "period drama", Blood Warriors (available to view on Sassy here). This short film brings to light those moments of teenage anxiety related to menstruation that too often travel with us into adulthood. Through her narrative, Truelove offers a rebellious cry of liberated female confidence; exploring the power of sisterly friendship within male-dominated environments. We asked Truelove to talk us through the motivations behind this project, learning how her feminist mindset fuels a determination to change the industry for the better.
