Directed by Ivan Madeira, Pattern is a heartfelt story of a new father at a crossroads after the sudden death of his wife, Mia, who passed giving birth to their daughter. This is a striking story about how grief can obscure our understanding of reality and bring us to the darkest parts of ourselves, even when we have the help of a support network to see us through. In Pattern, we watch a man fight through pain and conflict to hold onto the memory of his wife, and in doing so, Madeira teaches us that sometimes the only way to find true redemption is to let go.
Ivan’s first dramatic short film Grow Up (2011) became his gateway to filmmaking. Mental Healthy organisation CALM officially supported the film, which led it being featured at the British Urban Film Festival (BUFF), Cannes Short Film Corner and UK television. He went on to direct several other shorts, documentaries, music videos and campaigns.
