Join us for a live discussion of Marc Isaacs's work in film, moderated by Ben Nicholson, contributing critic at Sight & Sound and editor at ALT/KINO.
British independent documentary filmmaker Marc Isaacs has spent the past two decades with so many of the people the modern United Kingdom would prefer not to acknowledge, sharing spaces and stories from the peripheries of British society in a distinctive non-fiction hybrid style that defies easy classification.
As Lift, The Road, The Filmmakers House, Someday My Prince Will Come, and countless other works prove, Marc Isaacs' is an inventive, profoundly empathetic form of cinema, largely free from so many of the institutional shackles of contemporary British filmmaking. Since the early years of this century, Isaacs has again and again taken up his small digital cameras and engaged with regular British people on their own terms, without any condescension and with all the love and charity that exists in our world. His generosity towards the troubles of working people has taken on an unimaginably greater power and relevance in the long shadow of Brexit, as audiences will discover in the films themselves.
