All That Glimmers - The Films of Jeanie Finlay

“They’re all about people trying to find out who they are,” she says, “even if some are doing that in extreme ways. With The Great Hip-Hop Hoax I liked the idea of a lie that grew to weigh these two kids down. Making Orion, I felt like an archaeologist digging into the complex life of this spoilt boy who really wanted his dream. Even with Panto!, you’re focused on people willing to undergo transformation to discover themselves.”
- Jeanie Finlay talking to The Guardian.

All That Glimmers is available to watch NOW on True Story.
