Conversations With my Dead Father

Who do you talk to when you're frantically looking for a car space, need advice, help with the lotto numbers, or just to rant? This man talks to his dead father. Conversations With my Dead Father is an episode in the life of someone who lost their father but wants to continue the conversations. It's a film about remembering memories, some bitter, some sweet. It's about fights, diets; it's about missing the ones you love, it's about not letting go. It's about everyday chats. It's about life.

In Flow of Words

In Flow of Words follows the narratives of three interpreters of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. They interpreted shocking testimonies from witnesses, victims and perpetrators, without ever allowing their own emotions, feelings and personal histories to be present. Contrary to their position at the tribunal, this film places their voices and experiences center stage.

Something’s in the air and it’s not a bomb - it’s a revolution. Glam Rock is drowning out the noise of armoured cars. As British soldiers patrol the streets, kids are glued to Top Of The Pops, entranced by Marc Bolan, the androgynous, satin-clad, glitter-god. In a high-rise flat lives a recently bereaved father and his ten-year-old son PJ, who is desperate to get his hands on the new T. Rex album Electric Warrior. The problem is he’s skint and his Da is on the dole. PJ comes up with a cunning plan to get the dough, involving a sock, a prosthetic leg and a pawnbroker. Ruthless is a humorous, heartwarming story of how a prosthetic leg and a T. Rex album become the conduit for overcoming grief.
