The critically-acclaimed City of Ghosts and The Work are both nominated for Best Cinema Documentary in the 2018 Grierson Awards, with The Work receiving a double nomination status as candidate for Best Single Documentary - International.

Commemorating pioneering Scottish documentary filmmaker John Grierson, the awards are the biggest UK event celebrating documentaries of originality and excellence.

City of Ghosts follows the journey of “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently”—a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014 giving astonishing and deeply personal access to this brave group of citizen journalists as they face the realities of life undercover. 

Set inside a single room in Folsom Prison, The Work follows the raw and revealing process three men from outside undertake as they participate in a four-day group therapy retreat with level-four convicts.
