EXODUSDir Telmo dos Reis & Ulrico Grech-Cumbo
Be physically immersed in the herds making up part of the two million wildebeest that embark on a long and treacherous journey in an endless chase toward the rains. Stand on the banks of the infamous Mara River as the bravest in the herd leap right in front of you to make the season’s first crossing. Will they make it or won’t they?
UNTOLDDir Lester Francois
Length 6 mins
Documentary of a Street Art Event in Richmond, as a charity for The Reach Foundation featuring works from Adnate, The London Police, Mike Makatron, Lister and many more.
RONEDir Lester Francois
RONE is a distinctive portrait of the titular street artist, whose stunning large-scale portraits of women’s faces can be found adorning soon to be forgotten spaces, acting as a commentary on gentrification and the masculine realm of street art. The 360′ film takes the viewer inside Rone’s world: we follow him into the rarely-explored spaces in which he works (an abandoned paper mill, a house set for demolition, a crumbling theatre), and learn about his unique philosophy on art and life. The VR experience also takes the viewer into a Rone exhibition and inside his studio, giving them a front-row seat to the artistic process behind Rone’s epic murals.
