Molly Dineen is one of Britain's most acclaimed contemporary documentary filmmakers, known for her intimate and probing portraits of British individuals and institutions, and recipient of numerous accolades, including BAFTA, Grierson and RTS awards for documentary. This is the final of three volumes that bring all of her films.
Geri (1999) Geri Halliwell, the most colourful and outrageous of the Spice Girls, has dramatically left the band. Two days later, Dineen joins her as she dodges the paparazzi and seeks solace with family and friends in a fascinating rollercoaster ride through fame, celebrity and the personality behind that infamous Union Jack dress. The Lord's Tale (2002) Dineen follows one of Parliament's greatest upheavals: the abolition of the hereditary peers. With customary sensitivity, she puts a human face on the constitutional crisis, weaving the strands of the personal and the public to make one of the most astute political documentaries of the New Labour era. The Lie of the Land (2007) On the eve of the fox hunting ban, Dineen uncovers the unpleasant truths of life in the British countryside, where farmers struggle to survive under the weight of government legislation and national indifference towards rural communities.
