Right To Left

'Right To Left' is an unbiased documentary in which we follow Tommy English (The Leader of the EDL's LGBT division) as he marches alongside his friends and family for the 'March For England' event in Brighton. We set out attempting to set up a debate between both sides of the conflict however we soon realise this might not be as easy as we first thought.

The journey instead becomes not that of trying to get the sides to talk to each other, but instead trying to avoid imminent physical danger. The by-product of which sparked many newspaper articles and even video evidence in a court of law which lead to the prosecution of around 10 people.

Director Biography - Jody Doherty-Cove

I'm a 20 year old film maker with a love of journalism, excitement, and sections of society often dismissed as bizarre, eccentric, or dangerous. To me the best film documentary is one that makes you feel what it's like to be in that moment when the cameras are rolling, whether it's spending a week having your soul lurched upon by street preachers (Save Our Souls 2015), spending a week with the UK's top UFO hunter (A War of his World 2015), or marching alongside members of the far right (Right To Left).

I’ve directed, produced and edited two feature length shows for LatestTV, worked with bands such as ‘Groove Armada’, ‘Gorgon City’ and ‘Basement Jaxx’, worked under award winning journalist Tim Ridgeway as a news reporter for regional television, along with gaining a C4 credit for "Angry, White and Proud” (additional camera).

Director Statement

My first ever film 'Right To Left' was completed in 2014 and I have to say it's probably the most fun I've ever had in my life. It wasn't just the sheer morbid excitement of violence, it was the realisation that a film I had made could not only invoke feelings of disgust, anger, or emotion; but could also spark an intense discussion about the issues the film was (ultimately unsuccessfully) trying to deal with.
