Documentary filmmaker, Phoebe Hart, comes clean on her journey of self-discovery to embrace her future and reconcile the past shame and family secrecy surrounding her intersex condition.
Phoebe’s film Orchids: My Intersex Adventure recently won the hotly contested Best Short award at the mujerDoc documentary film festival in Spain. The latest award joins a veritable swathe of awards the film had earned since it’s release in 2012. Check out Orchids on facebook to learn more.
At LCR we love working on great documentaries, and Orchids is no exception. It’s fantastic to see the film receiving such accolades.
With his film The Queen and I, Douglas Watkin captures an encounter with royalty that became a highlight in his father’s life. Produced by Doug’s film company Double Wire with sound designed by our own Tfer Newsome.
