Rattling Stick and Little Compton Films are co-producing a feature documentary, “Nureyev: An Orgy of One”, about the acclaimed ballet dancer and cultural icon, Rudolph Nureyev. The film is directed by double BAFTA nominated directors David & Jacqui Morris, and is currently in final stages of post-production.
David & Jacqui’s first feature documentary, “McCullin”, about acclaimed war photographer, Don McCullin, won countless international awards and was nominated for two BAFTA’s for Best Documentary and Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer. Empire Magazine called it “a terrific and fitting tribute to one of modern history’s greatest eyewitnesses.”
David & Jacqui’s second feature documentary, “Attacking the Devil: Harold Evans and the Last Nazi War Crime”, won the Grierson for Best Historical Documentary in 2016 and picked up the Special Jury Prize at the highly regarded Sheffield Doc Fest. It tells the story of Sir Harold Evans, editor of The Sunday Times for fourteen years – “In an investigative climate all too rare by today’s standards, Evans had the freedom and resources to allow teams of journalists to work on long-term projects, including the exposure of Kim Philby as a Soviet spy. As Evans himself details in this stylish documentary, his longest and most hard fought campaign was for the victims of Thalidomide.”
As Dawn Porter, chair of the 2016 Sheffield Doc Fest jury said of the film “Attacking The Devil is a call to arms inviting us to examine our past as it celebrates and reminds us of the critical value of journalism.”
