A short poetic film that begins amidst the London riots of 2011, and ends a year later with the arrival of the Olympic flame a few miles from where Mark Duggan was shot dead by police. Jacob, a life-long Eastender, looks back at his childhood and considers whether promises such as 'development' and 'legacy' really mean anything to those who live in one of the poorest boroughs in the UK.
There are many ways to tell a story, and so much a Hindu wedding symbolizes. It was our hope to explore these themes in a far more dramatic way than we felt possible in a traditional documentary, and tell an engaging true love story filled with far more than meets the eye.
Melissa & Samir's incredible journey to Udaipur fulfilled a lifelong dream of being married in India. This transcendent place, affectionately called the "City of Lakes," would be the setting for their extravagant three-day wedding celebration and the backdrop of an unprecedented Pacific Pictures wedding film production. "City of Lakes" is the first ever live event scripted concept film created on this scale. It combines Melissa & Samir's real live wedding with a scripted production, which aims to tell their true life love story in the most engaging way possible.
