“Call it obsession, call it escapism or call it salvation, these three docs dig into three very different ways that a selection of menfolk have dedicated their lives; a lifetime of picture postcards, communication with communist extra-terrestrials and everyday life in ‘Pioneertown’.”
London Short Film Festival documentary programme ‘It’s A Mans World’ will be screening DEAR PETER on 7th Jan 12:30pm at the almighty, The Institute of Contemporary Arts. The screening will also have a Q+A with myself… c’mon on down!!!
dir. Scott Willis

But with the collection spanning over seventy years, a reunion seems unlikely. Who was Peter? How did his life end? And what happens to us when our time is up?
