Hello Britannia' is a short comedy drama, about a small group of Kurdish refugees smuggled aboard the back of a lorry in Calais, and bound for Britain.
Four Kurdish immigrants, Ali, Serkar, Hama and Alan, very different characters with very different dreams, are smuggled aboard a lorry. As the lorry begins its journey and the characters head towards their futures, tensions run high, but bonds are forged.
After a long confrontation, Aram a young Kurdish boy gradually give up waiting for his mother, and realises she will not be joining him and his father for a new life anymore.

Interview conducted by: Tom Steer & Rachel Harris
Thanks to Anna Ingleby The director of Beverley Puppet Festival
I met Shane Connolly at the 5th Beverley Puppet Festival in July 2012, initially to give me an interview for the feature-length documentary I was involved in for the main Puppet Festival in Beverley, but instead I were determined to go ahead and make a short film specifically about Shane's work.
A four minute trailer for a 48 minute documentary about the 5th Beverley Puppet Festival, which was held between July 13th - 15th 2012 and organised by the Beverley Arts Trust. Both trailer and documentary were filmed and directed by Havi Ibrahim with assistance from Tom Steer and others. The festival featured 23 puppet companies, many of which were filmed and interviewed for the full-length documentary, along with behind the scenes material. Both the film and the festival were made possible by National Lottery Funding through Arts Council England. The documentary will receive a premier screening in Beverley sometime soon and copies are available upon request.
