Bare Inequality

Category: Inside Film

In 2011 Inside Film began its first project outside the prison system. The project was part of Deirdre O'Neill's Ph.D called 'Film As A Radical Pedagogic Tool'.  Open Book, which is based at Goldsmith's University and aims to get socially excluded people back into education, including Higher Education, booked rooms for us at the University. The project ran for 9 months - starting with theoretical classes and workshops. As usual we had many people contributing sessions to the classes. Over the 9 months the group gradually whittled down to three people who we worked with to make a film called 'Bare Inequality' according to the philosophy of Inside Film: that film is a means to not only encourage creativity and confidence, but also and crucially, critical thinking about the world.

Deathwatch

Category: Inside Film

Deathwatch (18 mins)"]This film is set in some indeterminate future where the death penalty has been reintroduced. A group of documentary filmmakers follow the last hours of William Gibson before he is due to be executed. What makes this execution different is that William has been offered money for his family if he agrees to allow his death to be screened live on the Internet. Meanwhile his lawyer is desperately trying to get a stay of execution. This film is a tragi-comic mockumentary that deals with the contemporary issue of reality TV in a shocking and thought provoking way.

The Interview

The Interview  (9 mins)"]Following a car crash the driver wakes up and finds himself in a bureaucratic limbo.Slowly both we and he become aware that this is a celestial interview where the Devil and God argue over whether his soul will go to Heaven or Hell.

Who Am I?

Category: Inside Film

Who Am I? (7mins)"]This is an angry and passionate film that attempts to make connections between personal  identity and society.  The filmmakers use an unconventional approach, mixing a series of dramatic vignettes and documentary imagery and inserts. This film suggests links between international events, such as the war in Iraq, and the struggle to survive on the streets of the UK. Along the way the film poses vital questions about the way in which we all lead our lives and the choices we make.
