Postcards

  1. In the midst of a business park in Bedfordshire, you'll find Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre. Slotted in amongst the stocky offices of cement and the tall street lights that curve ominously towards the sky, you'd be forgiven for not noticing the 400 women that live between them; you weren't meant to... Through phone recordings, we document the reality of being a female asylum seeker inside Yarls Wood detention centre.

    With special thanks to the interviewees: Dorcas Issa, Deborah Issa & Martha

    Dancer Lindsay Kemp both amused and outraged audiences in London throughout the Sixties and Seventies. He taught David Bowie and Kate Bush how to move, and now at 77 is still teaching and dancing. We find Lindsay in the Italian port of Livorno, admired by a small coterie of students and fans, but largely forgotten by the outside world. He’s full of life but also dealing with passing time, which is both eating at his body and pushing him further adrift from his love of performance and the stage.

    Redcar is an industrial seaside town in North Yorkshire. Paccitos Ice-Cream parlour is one of its longest standing establishments. When asked why Bridger wanted to create the film she responded “My parents are both from Middlesbrough and I’ve wanted to make a documentary there for a while that was inclusive of the industrial landscape. I read something about Paccito’s the ice-cream parlour, which I’d been to as a child and it just seemed like a fitting idea to contrast the harshness of the industry with the softness of the ice-cream parlour.”

    Every year on the Island of Chios, Greece, a handful of tradition-abiding citizens host ‘Rouketopolemos’, a furious firework battle that has been waged for centuries between two local parishes. For some it’s the culmination of months of preparation and a highpoint of the year, for the others, the increasing scale has forced them indoors and to cover their homes in wire mesh for protection.

    While in Japan on a commercial shoot, directors Jonny Madderson and Jono Stevens happened across a meeting of champion karate kids. The duo captured these pint-sized Tokyo fighters, many of which are black belts by the age of seven – revealing a storied martial-arts tradition that is very much alive and well.
