The Story Behind the Story

Did you know that the story of our furry, fatally-attracted lovers started out as a play?

In 2010 Amanda Miha originally wrote Dacryphilia as a short monologue for the theatre, which was produced in Melbourne as part of Play Six and directed by Douglas Montgomery.

Whilst studying screenwriting she adapted the monologue into a short screenplay and the script became a semi-finalist in the 2012 BlueCat Short Screenplay Competition in the U.S.

Eventually Dacryphilia grew in to a full length play and had a successful season at the 2013 Melbourne Fringe Festival. Click here for a review of the performance.

This brings us to 2014, where Amanda has been working in close partnership with animator/director René Chandler to bring her short adaptation of Pablo and Adora to life on the screen!

The film is currently in the last stages of production and will be released later this year.
