Long Time

If ever I thought I was a long time trying to document Fundamental Islam to a profesional standard I can take heart from this.

The project as originally envisaged should have taken just three weeks. But few directors imagine that the film laboratory they are relying on will burn down or that the specialist black and white film stock they have chosen to give the movie that earthy film noir effect would run out, necessitating a worldwide search.

During a decade of calamities, the investment ran out, one of the main actors died, the leading man had gained weight and the master negative suffered serious damage which would have been fatal but for the restorative abilities of digital imagery.

A friend of mine was invloved in this film.

Room 36 is in the cinema in London now.
