Just Agree Then

Just Agree Then is the result of a two week collaboration in the Austrian Alps at European Forum Alpbach between myself and animator Ross Hogg in August 2018.

SYNOPSIS

Contrasting artistic visions, misplaced confidence and blatant ignorance collide on backdrop of an increasingly fragile and divided world.

In August 2018, seven months before the UK is due to leave the EU, two stubborn Scottish filmmakers attempt to make a short film together in the Austrian Alps.

Can they find common ground, or will they have to go their separate ways?
