In this episode we’re looking at the work of four independent filmmakers whose work celebrates eclectic personalities and mixes genres to beguiling effect: First, Alex Fitch talks to husband and wife directing team Jörg Tittel and Alex Helfrecht about their dystopian debut film The White King, starring Jonathan Pryce and Agyness Deyn, and to Nicolas Pesce about the influences on his monochrome thriller The Eyes of my Mother, from Béla Tarr to Tobe Hooper. Also, in a Q&A recorded at Chichester Cinema, Film Festival programmer Roger Gibson interviews Robert Mullen about his exploration of R.D. Laing’s anti-establishment psychiatric facility Kingsley Hall in Mad to be Normal.
