Sisters With Transistors (2020) // Lisa Rovner

East Africa Project Coordinator + Front of House: Abby

"A love letter to the “unsung heroines” of a radical movement, Sisters With Transistors is an audio-visual exploration into the strange and beautiful minds who carved out a new era of electronic music. Lush moving images gleaned from archival footage are woven together against a palette of shimmering sound, with reflections from contemporary artists, producers and composers. I’m in awe!"

Stray (2020) // Elizabeth Lo

Marketing Officer: Abbie

“This beautiful, meditative documentary follows three stray dogs around the city of Istanbul. I marvelled at the skill of director Elizabeth Lo, who also shot and edited the film. Her use of low-level camerawork immerses you into the lives of these dogs, and I can only imagine how challenging it was to film. Accentuated perfectly with a haunting score, this stunning documentary will stick with me for a while!”

Eat Up: Food, Appetite and Eating What You Want // Ruby Tandoh

Marketing Coordinator: Ellie

"Part memoir, part self-help book, part recipe book, Ruby Tandoh’s Eat Up is a nostalgic love letter to food. Discussing the emotions, lessons and challenges of food shopping, of cooking and of eating - whether you’re alone or with friends and family - Eat Up takes on food in all its forms. I particularly enjoyed the many cinema references she uses to link food and film - including the culinary meaning behind THAT restaurant scene in When Harry Met Sally. For film and food lovers everywhere!"
