Director Statement

People seek the familiar in films, whether it be a familiar genre, actors, or a specific kind of emotional gratification. Lewis believed that the kind of film he wanted to create could only come from such a place of unfamiliarity. He is constantly looking to make a connection between British society and bizarre themes, mixing the mundane and the fantastical, resulting in films that are often as distressing as they are wilfully strange.
