Mrs Lustleigh's Fancies
Oddbodies/Exeter Phoenix Digital
A darkly comic and fabulously grotesque tale of greed, curiosity and fatal attraction...
A journey of two friends
trying to reconcile their differences
in the the face of a decision
and a death
that has made them question
their own moral natures
and whether they could have
or did do

White English Men
"The term culture . . . includes all the characteristic activities and interests of a people; Derby Day, Henley Regatta, Cowes, the twelfth of August, a cup final, the dog races, the pin table, the dart board, Wensleydale cheese, boiled cabbage cut into sections, beetroot in vinegar, 19th century Gothic churches and the music of Elgar." - T.S. Eliot, 'Notes Towards the Definition of Culture'.
'White English Men' is a playful depiction of the English stereotype. We found 6 men with traditionally 'English' interests, found 6 'English' locations, and asked them about 'English' things.
This is a student film by Andy Oxley made in 2004 while he was studying at the University of Wales, Newport.
Directed by David Shaerf.
