This is a story of psychological disease and the impact it can have on families as they have to deal with the stress and problems that entails on a day to day basis.
Porphyrophobia is about a young man, Andrew Buxton, afflicted by the fear of the colour purple brought on by childhood memories that are referred back to throughout the film. This has left him locked inside his own world which keeps his own mother, Violet Buxton prisoner as well since she has to tend to all of his needs as Andrew refuses to even leave the house. A person can only be pushed so far though and when Violet finds Andrew deleting messages she leaves him to fend for himself.
A great short film by an extremely talented duo Paul Holbrook and Sam Dawe of Shunk Productions. Keep an eye out for this pair.
