Filmmaker Marc Isaacs introduces a specially curated programme of short films that have informed and inspired his practice.
“Whether it be a look at the vulgarity of a way of life put on trial: an impassioned and poetic plea for a human understanding of difference; a critique of Indian modernity; a look at the human cost of war or the street theatre of the absurd in Warsaw - each of these deeply moving and formally inventive shorts have remained with me for years. Hopefully they will work their magic on you too.” – Marc Isaacs.
