Marc Isaacs Collection: Lift / Travellers / Calais: The Last Border (DVD)


Three films by Marc Isaacs

- +

Marc Isaacs worked as an assistant to acclaimed filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski, who encouraged Isaacs to make his own film.

The result was Lift, and from that debut onwards Isaacs has shown a great capacity to empathise with the protagonists of his films. Never judging by appearances, Isaacs’ skill at getting to know the characters becomes part of the narrative of the film, and their (and our) prejudices and preconceptions are challenged by the reality he finds. 

Strong human characters are at the heart of all of Isaacs’ work and, in these three films (Lift, Travellers and Calais: The Last Border), he creates a succession of deeply moving portraits, piecing together a unique vision of life in modern Britain and just beyond its borders.
