I'm happy to announce my new film project: THE PEACE BETWEEN.

In collaboration with director Caroline Kamya, I am producing & shooting The Peace Between, a short documentary film telling the stories of friendships between locals and refugees in different corners of Europe: North, South, East & West. The film tells four stories, each one about a cross-cultural friendship between a local and a newcomer. We see how these relationships grew from first impressions and initial reservations, to the events that brought them together and how the friendship changed them.

We just had our first shoot in Budapest, Hungary in June 2017 and are currently casting in Denmark, Greece, & France, where we will shoot in July - September 2017. Film screenings will be followed by discussion times hosted by local organisations and churches, in order to open dialogue about being in community with new neighbours and relating to one another from a place of understanding and respect.

Check out my Patreon page for updates on the film, behind the scenes stories and more info on how you can become a patron of the arts. =)

This film is a passion project and is not for profit, financed in part by my generous patrons, who believe in supporting artists directly. In the olden days, it was the rich who supported the arts & had a say in commissioning projects - but with the Patreon platform, anybody can support their favourite artist for the price of a cup of coffee. At the moment, I have 50% of the funds that I need and am looking for more patrons who are passionate to see stories like these.
