We judge all the time, painting a canvas of assumption but are we ready to grow up and see our prejudices? 'RENAISSANCE OF BIAS' is a video art, short film that draws out bigotry and racial stereotypes in a poetic way. The film is set in an artist`s studio. The story begins when several people of different cultures and nationalities pose, and are being drawn for a painting, a loose take on the Raft of the Medusa by a French painter, tension between them arises after one of them is seen to be bullying the group. But is he the only one at fault? Using diptychs we explore how division determines the perception of an image from the artists point of view we understand that he sees the scene as a relationship of forms for a painting he is planning to do but also we see a world tainted by prejudices and assumptions.

From director producer team Steven Lyons and Merlyn Roberts comes Serurta (Sunbirth), an epic journey into the depths of ancient Britain, 700 years before the Roman conquest. The Friac, one of the ancient tribes of Britain are being driven from their land by the furious onslaught of the Celts, horse warriors arriving from the continent with weapons of iron and a thirst for conquest.
The last hope of his tribe Ontahil, is no hero nor warrior nevertheless he must face Serurta the greatest initiation of all. Ontahil travels to the desolate mist-enshrouded island of the dead. Stalked by the Terai, hunters with a taste for human flesh, he must find the immortal Shaman Kalaree, receive the blessing of the earth mother and begin his perilous descent into the underworld.
A tale of the Sun, the Moon, the Earth and mankind’s place in it all.
