Event description

Description

Nick Calori (director), Nick Sersale (director) and Elettra Pizzi (producer) will present clips from their upcoming film ‘Letters from the Blue’, a feature documentary on pen-palships with inmates on Death Row.

The filmmakers will discuss the numerous challenges in constructing a film based on letter writing. In particular they will show clips from the film to demonstrate the importance of allowing real life moments to speak for themselves and how additional layers of narrative (provided by the letters) should add new and interesting layers of meaning. They will also discuss the importance of narrative arc, character development and how the term ‘observational documentary’ might be a contradiction in terms.

Between them, Nick Sersale (Komeda films), Nick Calori (shufflefilms), Elettra Pizzi (130elektrafilms) have directed, edited and produced both feature films and documentaries including the award winning ‘Gualtiero Marchesi, the Great Italian’, ‘Greater Things’, and ‘The Invisible Word.’

Admission price of £7 includes the cost of this talk and the preceding one with Phil Madden.
