Description: Profile of Linton Kwesi Johnson whose poetry is rooted very strongly in feelings of marginalisation and alienation found within urban black populations in the UK. Johnson, born in Jamaica in 1952, has deliberately selected to align himself with the oral poetic tradition of the West Indies, in which the poet is not isolated and introspective, but has a definite social role as a commentator and interpreter, as a public voice around which folks can gather. As he tells in the film, "The spoken word has more immediacy: it reaches more people, than written poetry should ever do." The concerns of his poetry are the concerns of the community within which he moves: the young black working-class folks of inner town London who, mainly unemployed, are disaffected and disillusioned. […] The movie follows Johnson as he read his poems in a school, works at the Keskidee centre, records an LP, and recites at a march in Bradford. […] (British Universities Movie & Video Council)

Perhaps it is because, on their street to discovery, Min and his dancers probe deep down to the roots of the culture of all peoples, to the time when we were not yet Europeans and they were not Japanese.

Description: American Milo is a documentary about British journalist Milo Yiannopoulos as he spends a week in Los Angeles on a media tour. As much provocateur as journalist Milo is a special figure in the media landscape. A flamboyant gay boy with a lust for life and the limelight, he is also religious and thoughtful in his unapologetic conservative views. He is either loved or hated by those who know him and his work. He has a mission of view and he forces you to have one as well, which is why he was interesting to me as a movie subject. He has an honest opinion and he's not scared to tell it, and then defend it. This is becoming an increasingly rare quality in both folks and the media and I wanted to capture him and this moment in the cultural zeitgeist.
