Oundle Cinema dOCs+ presents
Wednesday 19th February (7.30pm)
AN EVENING OF GUARDIAN DOCUMENTARY SHORTS
Fletton House, Oundle
Glapthorn Road, PE8 4JA
Guardian Documentaries commission top international filmmakers to make films of 15-30 minutes, which take us in-depth into untold stories about real people.
These are very much standalone short, contemporary films designed to remain relevant in a year’s time or more, and so not necessarily tied to a current news story.
This evening, we are screening three films:
• 'Gun Nation’. In the 18 years since Zed Nelson's seminal photography book ‘Gun Nation’ was published, 500,000 Americans have been killed by firearms in the USA. Half a million people dead - and many more injured. Nelson returns to the people he met, photographs them, and asks “Why?”
• 'The Valley Rebels'. Spencer Wolff’s film is about Cédric Herrou, a French olive farmer and immigration activist. He became known in France and internationally following his arrests for helping more than 250 migrants cross into France from Italy. Herrou's efforts have been described in the media as the "French Underground railroad". After numerous convictions for assisting migrants to cross the border, Herrou's actions were found to be legal by the French Constitutional Council, which found Herrou's actions to be covered under the constitutional exercise of fraternity to others.
• 'Fighting Shame'. This film, by Sally Ogden, follows women in Leeds who have launched community initiatives to combat the stigma that surrounds poverty. They tell their stories through eight everyday objects which demonstrate daily struggles, and want their voices to be heard by the UK’s policymakers. It is the first documentary commissioned as part of a collaboration with the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, which is supporting the Guardian’s documentary films that seek to reframe the issue of poverty in the UK and engage a wide, mainstream audience.

His stand-alone thriller, A Shock to the System, was made into a feature film, starring Michael Caine.
Simon’s writing for radio and television includes After Henry, No Commitments and Smelling of Roses. Bill Nighy plays Charles Paris in the Radio 4 adaptations of his books.
In 2014 Simon was presented with the Crime Writers’ Association’s top award, the Diamond Dagger, and he was made an O.B.E. in the 2016 New Year’s Honours ‘for services to literature’.
