Channel 4 Casts ‘The Birth Of Daniel F Harris’
Channel 4 has announced the cast of The Birth Of Daniel F Harris, the latest series from BAFTA-winning The End of the F***ing World producer Clerkenwell Films. Lewis Gribben (Deadwater Fell) will feature as Danny, an 18-year-old who has been sheltered his whole life by his father Steve, played by Rory Keenan (The Duchess), after his mother was killed in a car accident when he was a baby. As he comes of age, he is taken to live with his Auntie, portrayed by Lisa McGrillis (Mum), and cousin Aaron, played by Samuel Bottomley (Everyone’s Talking About Jamie). As Danny and Aaron start to emerge from their shells together, Danny tries to find the monster who killed his mother. Written by newcomer Pete Jackson, The Birth Of Daniel F Harris is executive produced by Murray Ferguson, Petra Fried, and Emily Harrison. Alex Winckler (This Way Up) and Alexandra Brodski (Joy) direct. It is made in association with BBC Studios, which will sell the show internationally. Filming is underway.

ROOFTOP REFUGEE WINS  AT BUNDESFESTIVAL JUNGER FILM 2020

***NACHHALTIGKEITSPREIS FÜR Rooftop Refugee beim Bundesfestival Junger Film 2020*** /
*Sustainability-Award for Rooftop Refugee


Jurybegründung:
Ein Thema von hoher politischer Aktualität und Relevanz behandelt Rooftop Refugee von Alexandra Brodski, der mit dem Filmreif – Nachhaltigkeitspreis ausgezeichnet wird. Der Film schafft es, den ganz klar vorhanden Alltagsrassismus nicht auszustellen, sondern ihn unvermittelt in einem beiläufigen Teppich von Äußerungen zu zeigen, der während der gesamten Handlung beunruhigend im Hintergrund mitschwingt. Es geht um die Frage, wie sehr wir eigentlich auf die Bedürfnisse anderer Menschen achten und ihnen mit Offenheit begegnen.

*Jury statement:
The FILMREIF - Sustainability Award goes to Rooftop Refugee by Alexandra Brodski - a film which deals with a topic of high political relevance. The film manages not to exhibit everyday racism, which is clearly there, but to show it in a casual carpet of comments that resonates in the background throughout the entire action. The film deals with the question of how much we actually pay attention to the needs of others.
