Devotions

DEVOTIONS, PRODUCTION FINISHED "Variable, and therefore miserable condition of man! this minute I was well, and am ill, this minute. I am surprised with a sudden change, and alteration to worse, and can impute it to no cause, nor call it by any name". John Donne "Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions".

Kósher

KÖSHER, NEW fashion film. Coming soon...
KÖSHER features food, Jewish humour, inspiration from Chagall's paintings and the fabrics of Russian Constructivist theatre. This portrait of small everyday rituals is infused by a special Tolstoyan simplicity and a foreshadowing of Revolution. The various moments of the day in this domestic microcosm are accompanied by Sefardi and Ashkenazi songs which encourage us to dance, eat or while away the hours.

STORMS

STORMWATER, Filmed inside the biggest underground storm water deposit in Europe. Awarded a prize by Matadero Madrid Art Centre. The film features 3 singers and La Trova Choir.

Devotions

SOMETHING OLD, A mysterious woman sits waiting. Machinery grinds into movement. She performs a kind of trick... her long hair seems to have a life of its own. The action moves inexorably forward to the strange rhythm of an accordion playing a slow tango.
