MASTER CLASS

Sean Mcallister

Filmmaker, UK


Sean McAllister left school at 16, worked in a series of low-paid low-skilled factory jobs in his hometown of Hull before finding a camera. He filmed his way into the National Film and Television School (NFTS), graduating in 1996. Sean has a “Vérité”approach to his film-making where he becomes involved, he intervenes and he asks the questions which often provoke his subjects (and himself) into insights, thoughts, and realisations which they never knew they had. Sean’s work continues to inspire, to surprise and to fascinate audiences, right from his early films “Working For The Enemy” (1997) and “The Minders” (1998) to his more recent successes, such as “The Liberace Of Baghdad”, “Japan: A Story Of Love And Hate”, “The Reluctant Revolutionary” and “A Syrian Love Story”.
