DEAR PETER : LONDON SHORT FILM FESTIVAL 2017

dear_peter_lsff

“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!!!

Dear Peter
dir. Scott Willis
(2016)

After discovering a large collection of handwritten postcards in a secondhand shop, filmmaker Scott Willis begins a journey to track down their owner. The messages on the postcards create a picture of unknown man called Peter.

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?
