AOP Awards

Excited and honoured

Our short film,  Appalachia: Mountain Tops to Moonscapes  is a finalist in the moving image category at this year's AOP Awards.

The ancient mountain forests of Appalachia have been felled and what remains is an eerie, barren landscape of rough-hewn rock.   The short film shows the effects of mountain top removal in America's coal heartland.

The Awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Land on the evening of 13 October and followed by the exhibition and a packed program of talks and seminars and workshops under the title of Beyond the Lens running Friday 14 - Monday 17 October.

Music of exile from the Saharawi of the Western Sahara

Working with www.sandblast-arts.org   Film and Stills. 

The previously nomadic Saharawi people are now restricted in refugee camps in Algeria, scattered in the Western Sahara and living in small numbers in diaspora across the world. Their music tells of a common identity and struggle - ongoing for 40 years but rarely spoken of. 
This short film teaser features some of the founders of the first national, organised Saharawi group, the El Wali Band and acts as an introduction to an ever present and increasingly pressing international issue.
