The Lawyer and the Warlord

Posted on June 9th, by mosaicfilms in In Production, Uncategorized. No Comments

A British defence lawyer and his war criminal client form an unusual partnership to try and bring peace to a small corner of a seemingly hopeless country, the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Is reconciliation ever possible between perpetrators of terrible crimes and their victims?

Barrister David Hooper thinks so and wants to help his client, the warlord Germain Katanga, make peace with the survivors of a massacre in a Congolese village where in 2003 his militiamen shot and hacked to death more than 100 people from another ethnic group.

That could happen this year. Germain is near the end of his 12-year sentence and later this month David will go back to the International Criminal Court to argue for his early release.

Director: Lisa Clifford
Executive Producer: Andy Glynne

 



I Can’t Go To School Today

Posted on June 9th, by mosaicfilms in Animation, Our Films, Uncategorized, Web. No Comments

I Can’t Go To School Today is a series of animated documentaries for BBC exploring the experiences of children living with different illnesses and conditions. Using the testimonies of six young people, we worked with animators to tell their story visually. Mosaic Films have a unique reputation for innovating the use of animation and documentary together.

Each of these films tells of the experiences of a young person whose life is markedly different from their peers, and who have all taken time off school because of their illness. We hear from ten-year-old Summer who has epilepsy, she describes how epilepsy effects her memory, often she can’t remember the joke she wanted to tell her friends. Despite missing school, Summer is ambitious and an avid writer. Naomi has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and is now in remission. Naomi bravely tells us … Read More »



Autism’s very Musical Children

Posted on July 31st, by mosaicfilms in In Production, Uncategorized. No Comments

An inspirational music teacher, Adam Ockelford, patiently and gently unlocks the potential of a number of severely autistic children, some with little or no speech. He coaxes them to greater and greater musical achievements by unraveling the chaos of sounds in their heads. His piano lessons bring order and a sense of achievement to their difficult and anxious lives. Over the course of a year he will set himself the huge challenge of preparing them for a public concert, which he feels will have an incredible impact on their self-esteem. This 1 x 60″ documentary will follow him and the children.

Romy (12) and Freddie (13), both profoundly autistic, had their lives completely changed thanks to Adam Ockelford. Both children have ‘Perfect pitch’, as many autistic children do. ‘Perfect pitch’ is the ability to play by ear. … Read More »
