“We knew they were building something in the parking lot outside. We felt the house shaking and saw how the door frame and the stairwell burst.” In a vibrant short film, Astrid Askberger tells the story of how it feels to get a new wall ten meters from her window.
The film depicts how people become tiles in a larger game, but also how they with their own initiatives can find ways to relate to the rules of the game.

The documentary follows the rehearsals of the 'Projeto Voz Própria' (Own Voice Project), focused on the therapeutic treatment of imprisoned women, for a gig at the Women's Penitentiary Chapel in São Paulo.

JADE is a short film taken from our 'Stories Untold' project which is a series of short films featuring London-based migrants. After almost a year in development, and an extensive casting process, we selected six diverse stories to help spread a positive message and challenge the current rhetoric surrounding migration in a post-Brexit Britain.
In our ever politically unhinged world we chat, moan, groan and celebrate our lives with likeminded people. People who have lived similar lives and share similar ambitions, successes and adversities. It seems that talking to people with the same views, and similar stories to our own, gives us the self-validation in today's world.
But, in a post-Brexit Britain, we think it's imperative that we start to share stories outside of our own bubbles. We want to remind people that whoever we are, wherever we've come from, we are all navigating the world and trying to get by as best we can. We are all human.
These collection of short films will speak to London migrants from all different social, political and economic backgrounds and ask them to tell us their story with their own words.
