The Archive (2018)
Compiled entirely from archive materials including a de-classified FBI file, The Archive tells the incredible story of David Drucker, a lawyer in 1940s America. Employed by the Soviet Union and communist China to broker trade deals with the west, his work quickly brought him to the attention of J. Edgar Hoover and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Always travelling with a Bolex 16mm camera David captured stunning footage of newly post-revolution China. However, FBI agents were never far behind, also documenting his every move. (16mm, 12 mins)
Screenings: Sheffield Doc/Fest, Cambridge Film Festival, DOC NYC, UK Jewish Film Festival, Roma CinemaDoc, Pune Film Festival and nominated for Best Short Documentary at Moscow Jewish Film Festival.

Nearly 50 years after it was built, the film asks the current residents whether the democratic ethos underpinning the origins of the estate is borne out today. (DV, 5 mins)
