Marc Isaacs Collection Film Poster


Collection of three documentaries by the filmmaker Marc Isaacs. After working as an assistant to the renowned filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski, Isaacs has created three films that each capture a part of modern life in Britain. The first, 'Lift' (2001), is filmed in the elevator of a tower block in the East End of London, and captures the different reactions and behaviour of those who enter it. The second, 'Travellers' (2002), is a touching film about the human need for love, which is shown through the stories of five different people Isaacs meets on trains and at train stations across England. The third film, 'Calais - The Last Border' (2003), examines a host of interesting characters that includes refugees and migrants desperate to cross The Channel to England, and Steve who runs an English pub in the French harbour town.
