    [Isaacs] has quietly built a body of work that puts him amongst the most empathetic documentary observers we have of lives often overlooked --Time Out

    Isaacs has an astounding gift for getting people to open up to him and he uses film the way a skilled artist uses paint. The result is beautiful, heartbreaking and profoundly humane --The Times

    Filmmaker Marc Isaacs is one of Britain s most experimental and revered documentary makers... making films that shine an intimate and revealing light on modern Britain --BBC Online
