Heaven’s Rage is based on the novel of the same name by author Leslie Tate. Leslie Tate’s memoir is by turns an elegy for a lost childhood, a tribute to the power of literature and a demand for the right to identity in world that turns too easily on those who differ from the conventional.
Theatre On Wax’s short film is a visionary reinterpretation of the autobiography as pure cinema. At times dreamlike and otherworldly and at others beautiful yet elegiac.
