Amulet + Q&A

Following an accident that leaves him homeless in London, former soldier Tomaz (Secareanu) is brought to the rotting home of Magda (Juri), a lonely woman in desperate need of help as she looks after her dying mother. Though at first resistant, Magda eventually welcomes him into their lives and allows him to help her care for them. But as he worms his way into their routine and begins to fall for Magda, Tomaz starts to notice strange, unexplainable, and ugly phenomena. A hauntingly assured work, Garai’s feature directorial debut propels a terrifying morality tale into the realm of high art.

About Jardel Rodrigues

Jardel Rodrigues is a writer from South Manchester. BBC Words First winner 2020, UNESCO Slam-O-Vision winner 2021 and Young Identity poet and Facilitator.

Jardel hopes that the poem is self-explanatory and tells you all you need to know from the power and strength of his words. Jardel says, “Poetry is subjective… take from it what you need and discard the rest, or simply revel in the power of the voice and lived experience of the poet”.
