Bella Ramsey, star of the hit series “The Last of Us,” has been making headlines again with their role in the short film “Requiem.” Originally released in 2021, the film has now been posted on YouTube, providing a wider audience the chance to experience this remarkable work.

Set against the backdrop of the witch trials in 1605, “Requiem” tells the moving coming-of-age story of Evelyn, played by Ramsey, as she navigates the difficulties of being in love with another woman in a time of intense religious conservatism. To be with Mary, the woman she loves, Evelyn must engage in a dangerous game of cat and mouse against her father, Minister Gilbert, who is determined to stamp out any behavior he sees as sinful or deviant.

Ramsey delivers a stunning performance, bringing Evelyn’s fears, defiance, and vulnerability to life with sensitivity and nuance.

With lush cinematography, haunting music, and a powerful message about love and acceptance, “Requiem” is a triumph of independent filmmaking. It serves as a reminder of the power of cinema to transport us to different times and places and to help us understand the struggles of those who came before us.
