The long-running arts series returns with a satirical film, looking at the pressures faced by women today.

Created by and co-starring multimedia artist Rachel Maclean, the story is set in a place where surveillance, violence and submission are normalised parts of live. It follows Siri (Christina Gordon), a woman who finds herself trapped in a brutalist candy-coloured dreamhouse, where she is forced into participating in humiliating tasks with the other inmates.

Arena is on BBC Four at 22.00.
