Director Biography - Jennifer Anne Heloise Farfort

In 2018 I was co-director, editor and camera on a mental health short documentary 'Circle of Support'. The film was launched on 10 October 2018, World Mental Health Day.

In the same year I made 'The High Tide Theatre' short-list for the short play '500 Likes'

From there I joined 'Artworks' a programme run by 'Trust Links' a mental health and well-being charity where I was made an artistic director and co-wrote a play called 'Seasons'

Since then I have made promos for 'Providence Row' a homeless charity, in production on a documentary for 'The Faux' - the UK's only homage band to 'The Fall', and working on feature film scripts.

In 2020 I set up 'Child Of The Sun Films' in reference to my Mum's Caribbean heritage.

Director Statement

My debut full length documentary 'Bullet From The Blue' came about when my therapist suggested joining 'Open Arts Essex' a community arts and mental health project. It was here where I met volunteers who went on to create a seawall mural at Canvey Point, to commemorate the loss of The USAAF B17 Bomber 'Heavenly Body II' that came down just off Canvey Point on 19th June 1944.
