Grateful, proud and honoured is how we are feeling today with the news that Natasha and Nikki have been invited to become members of the Documentary chapter of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.
We're pleased to announce that Jason Barker's debut feature doc A DEAL WITH THE UNIVERSE will premier at the BFI FLARE Film Festival as the Centrepiece screening in London on 26th March. Autobiographical and made entirely from personal archive and home video diaries, the film follows Jason’s incredible story of how he came to give birth to his child, charting over 15 years of his and his partner’s life. The documentary offers a new perspective on the Trans stories we may have heard before, focusing on life after transition. Empowering and heartwarming this is a feel good film that is guaranteed to leave an impact. Book tickets here:
Produced by Loran Dunn of Delaval Films in association with Tigerlily Productions
The British film industry was central to Harvey Weinstein’s success, making him one of the most powerful men in Hollywood. While A-list actresses have made allegations of harassment, sexual abuse and rape by the renowned producer, this one hour film hears allegations of how he used his power and position to abuse his colleagues and workers in the British Isles, and keep them silent for 30 years.
A spokesperson for Harvey Weinstein has previously said that any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied.
Featuring in-depth interviews with former assistants and others who worked closely with Weinstein in the UK, the programme hears employees’ experiences of behaviour they describe as a misuse of power to dominate, control and humiliate.
Premiers on Channel 4 10pm 20th February
