The Road: A Story of Life and Death
2012 / UK / 75 mins / Dir: Marc Isaacs
Acclaimed documentarian Marc Isaacs follows the A5 – one of the main immigration routes into the UK – discovering the profoundly moving stories of a number of characters who have made their way to London from all over the world.
A study of immigration that deliberately avoids being polemical or didactic, and featuring voices that generally remain unheard, The Road offers a fascinating and valuable insight into how life is for people who have come to this country from elsewhere.
‘Touching, funny and revealing’
‘Full of poignancy’
