The Filmmaker’s House by multi award winning Producer and Director, Marc Isaacs.  In cinemas and VOD in 2021

Gabriella Ross

This is a unique docu-film that walks the thin line between documentary and fiction.
When acclaimed filmmaker Marc Isaacs was told his next film must be about crime, sex or celebrity to get funded, he decided to take matters into his own hands. He began shooting a film in his home, with people connected to his own life becoming its stars: the two English builders, who Isaacs has employed to replace his fence; the Pakistani neighbour, who he now temporarily shares a garden with; a homeless Slovakian man, who invites himself in and tests everyone's ideas of the expectations and boundaries between host and guests in the process; and the Filmmaker’s Colombian cleaner, who is charmed by all who visit. 
Blending documentary with fiction, and a wry humour with emotional intensity, Issacs unfolds a story which is both thought provoking and which also asks pertinent questions about the nature of filmmaking itself.
