Believing they have found one such answer, Eli is transported in a safe suit to a ‘clinic’ aka a mansion in the middle of nowhere complete with a team of staff who state they can cure him. Whether they can, their true motives and the history of the house are soon to be exposed.

Tell Me Who I Am

Officially selected at Telluride Film Festival, Hamptons International Festival and BFI London Film Festival; ‘Tell Me Who I Am‘ is a documentary of twin brothers. When Alex Lewis was involved in an accident aged just 18 years old, he lost his memory. Absolutely everything of Alex’s memory was lost even his own name, everything except the memory of his twin brother Marcus. Immediately recognising Marcus as his brother he relied on him to reconstruct the memories he had lost and Marcus was of course more than happy to oblige. Unbeknownst to Alex, the memories Marcus provided were not exactly the truth. Years later Alex and Marcus must face the truth together in this documentary film.

Daybreak

Post-apocalyptic, teen, coming-of-age, comedy, drama, horror series. Phew, we can see why this whole genre-bending term is becoming an actual genre of its own! Basically teenagers coming of age in a post-apocalyptic world that has no adults. Why no adults? well, as part of the apocalypse, adults turn into ‘Ghoulies’ (zombies) and the kids are left to fend for themselves. Naturally dividing into ‘tribes’ not dissimilar to their high school clubs, the fight for for top dog is on! Oh and the fight for survival obvs.
