We’re delighted to have another well respected documentary filmmaker Geoffrey Smith in Edinburgh to talk about his latest work.

Geoffrey received international recognition with his first multi award winning feature length documentary ‘The English Surgeon’, described as “deeply touching, resonant…and very funny!” An intimate portrait of brain surgeon Henry Marsh as he wrestles with the patient doctor relationship in a Ukranian hospital full of desperate patients and makeshift equipment.

Geoffrey has just finished his latest film ‘Presumed Guilty’ about two young lawyers and their incredible struggle to free Tono. With no background in film, they set about recording his story as they realized that only a camera could reveal the institutionalized injustice they were witnessing.

Free but please RSVP to f.cosquer@eca.ac.uk
