Three days after 9/11 I flew into the Middle East.

 

What followed was a five year  odyssey through 12 Muslim countries, a testament to the world on fire, those who fan the flames and a gateway into the bizarre world of Westerners living right at the heart of conservative Islam ......

 

 

The film appeared at four international film festivals during 2010/11 picking up three nominations for best documentary and best international film. It also received two RIFE awards from Screen South and the UK Film Council.

The SPIN  -  Libya to Malta

 

2005 - Biting flies , no a/c in an 80 degree classroom, salt sweat. Jumped ship from work in Libya to spend the summer in Malta. Just a thirty minute flight but below boat folk from the ass-end of Africa were risking their lives for a toe on the Italian shore..

 

Diving off Gozo and down further in the lightless resound of the Hypogeum. My friend Mary came to stay. In July, Mercan Dede, a Turkish Sufi musician was playing with his band in the old fort in Valetta where Alan Parker had filmed the prison scenes for Midnight Express - " You are a  bad machine, that's why the factory keeps you here". Joyous music in a place of Turkish damnation. Mercan toured with a Sufi dancer, Mira Burke-the whole thing turned into one of those rare truly magical nights.

 

The film is cut with some scenes from my travels in the Middle East - a place far from the one dimensional spin shown in the West. It is a region of huge diversity and vivacity which functioned well enough before the coming of Empire from the other side of the world and its age old playbook of destabilisation, destruction and divide and rule.........

Swine of the city swine of the field

 

The Fourth Pig is plum full of pork, the porked, landscapes of a curious netherworld mired by bent, insidious communications that can only be resolved by travelling deep into the lair of the distorters.

  

Based on a short story idea by myself and Adam Whitehall. Filming began during the Occupy London movement in the autumn of 2011 before veering off firmly into the world of fairytale and allegory mapping  geopolitics and its concealing spin .

 

Filming on the Fourth Pig took place in many landscapes throughout the UK, Lanzarote, Andalusia, Austria and the Czech Republic before stalling in post-production due to continued chronic illness.

Screenwriter:  Tim Cutler

Genre:  Documentary

 

"We came, we saw, he died............."

Hillary Clinton, Tripoli, Libya  2011

 

In Spring 2011 Muama Al Gaddafi was to be awarded a human rights prize by the United Nations ... seven months later he was dead..... his country in ruins.

 

West of Tripoli, the town I had lived in had been destroyed by mortar attack, the whereabouts of the young engineers I had taught unknown.....

 

This is the story of a Libya untold in the West.

Following correspondence with one of my Libyan students who had fled to Senegal at the outbreak of war,  this was a documentary project in development based on a prospective return to Tripoli to find out what had become of my class of 2005 as a result of the Western coup.
