Synopsis: An uncomfortably digestible light bite, with a splash of dark comedy, dished up to inform and empower everyone when it comes to clearing up consent. Spaghetti was created by an entirely female shooting crew.

When Alice goes back to James’ house after a date, she has a snack in mind. But when Alice goes to the bathroom, she returns to find James has made Spaghetti Bolognese. Initially Alice turns the pasta down, but with a little persuasion she goes silent and eats it anyway. 

This film was made to support the #SilenceIsNotConsent movement.
