The Filmmaker’s House

Directed by Marc Isaacs

When the Filmmaker (Marc Isaacs) is told his next film must be about crime, sex or celebrity to get funded, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He begins shooting a film in his home, with people connected to his own life becoming its stars: the two English builders, whom Isaacs has employed to replace his fence; the Pakistani neighbour, with whom he now temporarily shares a garden; 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, acclaimed filmmaker Marc Isaacs unfolds a story which asks pertinent questions about the nature of filmmaking itself.
