Stephan Bookas & Tristan Daws

Inspired by W.H. Auden’s work, Refugee Blues is a documentary poem from the jungle in Calais.

Fairytale of the Three Bears

Short documentary – 2013

From Russia’s northern tundra to the lakes of Eastern Siberia, three men share their fairytale of Soviet times.

“A poignant reflection on how eras gone by can fade from memory while myths endure.”

The day we danced on the Moon

Short documentary – 2010

On Ireland’s rugged West Coast, a reggae band from London make their way to play in an arts festival. Long-term mental health sufferers, they share their tales of psychosis, the wrestling between reality and an imaginary world which can seem all too real.

“A film that takes us from the side of mental illness with great tact, respect, empathy for people who are filmed. A film challenging our prejudices, showing us how the line between the mentally ill people and the supposedly “normal” is fragile. A film about what connects us to one another. A film that shows how the real and the imaginary are closely entwined.”

Nicolas Philibert, director être et avoir
(writing about ‘the day we danced on the moon’)
