  • Strange Lights

    On a winter's night in 1980, American servicemen stationed at an RAF base, witnessed some 'unexplained lights' in Rendlesham Forest. The incident has since become Britain's most famous UFO mystery with abounding rumours of conspiracies and cover-ups. Some argue that the incident was a hoax whilst others believe that the forest is a doorway to another dimension. Maintaining a balance between celebration and criticality, this film revisits the forest, thirty years later, in search of similarly 'inexplicable' events.

  • The City Speaks

    A collaborative work by Joe King, Rosie Pedlow,
    writer Mike Walker and composer David Pickvance
    2006, 16mm single channel, 15:00 mins
    An old man in the grip of dementia finds himself lost on Hackney's busy Kingsland Road. Who is he, what is he trying to escape from? A lyrical journey through a familiar landscape that is at once known and unknown; a palimpsest in which the past is seen as a reflection of the present, in which the memory of a terrible crime is glimpsed in reflections and shadows, hints and muttered phrases. I am not you are not me is an existential detective story written on the glass and concrete of a street that leads from City to cemetery.

    Fragmented vignettes weave and divide in a film that plays with Hollywood's portrayal of cancer. In 'the 'movies' it is nearly always the young, talented and beautiful who die from this disease even though cancer is most often the product of aging as cells divide over and over.

  • Sea Change

    Joe King & Rosie Pedlow
    2005, 35mm, single channel, 05:00 mins
    Filmed on a caravan park at the end of the season, Sea Change reveals a landscape dramatically transformed by light and time, and resonating with the transience of human presence. The old caravans were being removed and crushed to make way for a new housing development, so the film also acts as a kind of document for an unusual place on the brink of disappearance.

    'Among the low-priced, factory-produced goods, none is so appealing to the sense as the ordinary hand tool' Walker Evans
    The beauty of the common tool is inspiration for this abstract film. Imagery, generated by direct to film techniques and digital photography, is set in motion to an electronic score by the Berlin based, contemporary composer Richard Barrett.

    Diagrams of chemistry apparatus and educational film footage react and combine in this quirky interpretation of a poem by Nobel Laureate Chemist Roald Hoffmann. The film is an experiment to illustrate how technology changes the way we represent the world, with results that prove ironic and inconclusive.
