This film was last shown on 1 July 2021

When the filmmaker is told his next film must be about sex, crime or celebrity to get funded, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He begins shooting a film in his home, starring people connected to his own life: the two English builders employed to replace his fence; his Pakistani neighbour who he shares a garden with; and the filmmaker’s Colombian cleaner, who is charmed by all who visit.

One of the UK’s foremost documentary filmmakers, the multi award-winning Marc Isaacs (Lift, Travellers, Outside the Court) tells stories of modern Britain by connecting with ordinary people. Blending documentary and fiction, The Filmmaker’s House is laced with wry humour, emotional intensity and a radical curiosity.
