Story

Four countries.
Four couples.
A myriad of complications.

In Corpore is a completely improvised, independent drama produced by husband and wife directing duo Ivan Malekin and Sarah Jayne under Nexus Production Group.

Set in Melbourne, Malta, Berlin and New York, the pair filmed In Corpore as they migrated from Australia to Malta in late 2017 and early 2018, with a few detours along the way.

Recently married, Ivan and Sarah were interested in exploring the expectations of traditional marriage verses the values of polyamory and the effect of human failings on both ideals.

In Corpore presents four anthological stories about couples under strain, loyalties tested, and what happens when one partner’s desires deviate from the expectations of the relationship – be it traditional or open. The film examines the nature of commitment and the idea of sacrificing personal desires at the altar of love. Is it selfish to follow the desires of your body and soul or is this the only path to fulfilment? Even if it means hurting the one you love?
