what is happening??

Well this is a messed up, surreal world we’re currently living in isn’t it? I hope you’re all keeping safe, staying home and as sane as possible… here’s a couple recommendations if you’re looking for anything that is completely un-apocalyptic:

Books for you: I’m currently reading Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben and The Art of Memoir by Mary Karr. I’ve also just listened to Lanny by Max Porter – brilliant. 

Documentaries: early this year we premiered our feature-length documentary The Reason I Jump at Sundance Film Festival and were thrilled when it won the Audience Award for World Cinema Documentary. It’s been many years in the making with some wonderful contributors and an amazing team and given where we find ourselves with coronavirus now, we were incredibly lucky to have premiered before things started getting crazy – there’s a couple of reviews here from the Hollywood Reporter and from Screen Daily to give you an idea of what it’s about. The Reason I Jump isn’t yet available to stream but I just saw that another great film at Sundance, Crip Camp (Netflix), is – so that’s my recommendation for you right now!
