We are happy to announce our upcoming short film production ISHA, by London-based US director Christopher Manning.
Manning’s previous short film, JAMIE, has been recently released by Peccadillo Pictures through their acclaimed DVD label Boys On Film. Jamie was also part of the BFI and British Council’s first global digital LGBT short-film programme #FiveFilms4Freedom 2017.
ISHA will be a co-production with the London Film School. The project is part of a longer-term cooperation between Manning and 198 Films, in preparation of the director’s feature debut.
ISHA is scheduled to be released in early 2018.
There has been a flurry of articles in the British press following the European premiere of Forgotten Man, produced by 198 Films’s Anna Jancsó.
The film is the first feature by Canadian director Arran Shearing, and paints the portrait of social and class division in contemporary London through the tale of a homeless actor, who falls for a wealthy girl.
Jerry Hall, who has a part in the film, was accompanied to the East End Film Festival Premiere by her husband Rupert Murdoch, to the shock and surprise of the festival and the filmmakers. Murdoch was greeted with what the Guardian’s Marina Hyde calls a “good old-fashioned East End welcome”.
