Verve Pictures is thrilled to release esteemed documentary filmmaker, Marc Isaac's THE FILMMAKER'S HOUSE in cinemas, virtual cinemas and premium VOD from 29th January 2021 after its recent World Premiere at Sheffield Doc Fest in October 2020.
Recognised as one of the foremost documentary filmmakers of his generation, Marc Isaacs creates intimate portraits fuelled by insight, compassion and humour. His empathic and deeply moving documentaries explore the extraordinary world of the everyday, presenting a unique vision of modern Britain.
When 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, 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, acclaimed filmmaker Marc Isaacs unfolds a story which asks pertinent questions about the nature of filmmaking itself.
