    • To Hold A Heart
      (Michael Wallin, USA, 2005, video, 13 min.)
      Two men with seemingly little in common find each other in a not-so-chance encounter at the gym. Slowly, an intense bond of intimacy and trust develops. Could this be love?

    • Gypo
      (Jann Dunn, UK, 2005, video, 98 min.)

      There are three sides to every story.

      Helen (Pauline McLynn) has been married to Paul (Paul McGann) for twenty-five years. She lives a monotonous and frozen existence on the Kent coast of England. Desperate and damaged, she is looking for change.

      Paul is on the brink of a breakdown, sick and tired of being stuck in the poverty trap. Bitter, hypocritical, and bigoted, Paul's biggest fear is change.

      Into their lives comes Tasha (Chloe Sirene), a Romany Czech refugee awaiting her British passport and her chance for freedom - a concept taken for granted by all those around her.

      Told in three revelatory narratives, Gypo brings to life a broad range of answers to questions of immigration and race. From Paul's deep-rooted xenophobia to Helen's desire for new experiences outside her mundane life, Tasha embodies everything one is drawn to and the other hates. The film reveals how the disintegration of an ordinary working class family finally comes to a head when unexpected emotions are unleashed.

      The first certified Dogme95 film made in the UK, Gypo is an innovative, gripping and engaging journey into the heart of a dysfunctional British family. The film reveals how suburban fears and tabloid sensationalism have come to perpetuate the myths surrounding refugees.
