Filmart productions started its six-week shoot for Anaphylaxis! at London's Ealing Studios on Jan 8.

The low-budget feature is the first on Filmart's slate. Ayman Farahat is writing, directing and producing. The cast is led by Guy Defferary and Katia Winter.

The story follows a pathologist, who is allergic to human touch, who becomes obsessed with a dead poet whose body is tattooed with a manuscript. The film's dialogue comes only from voiceover.

Farahat says: 'it is important to realise that although Anaphylaxis has a slightly unusual filmmaking approach, it is still very much a narrative film. Instead of the conventional reliance on dialogue, action and plot to convey the films meaning, Anaphylaxis, as a visual poem, will rely more heavily on the visual elements.'
