A 4-star review for Finbar's feature film as producer 'To Nowhere' (Dir. Sian Astor-Lewis) in The Guardian, one of the UK's most prestigious film review publications.
"To Nowhere feels deeply personal, bloody as a fresh wound, and entirely sugar-free... Astor-Lewis draws out superb performances from both the leads, whose dialogue consistently feels spontaneous, their chemistry unforced."
Finbar's feature documentary project as producer 'A Distant Call' reported on in Variety for winning the Documentary Association of Europe Award at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2023. The award was given based on the strength of the live pitch and presentation of a 10-minute excerpt of the film's rough cut.
A 4-star review for Finbar's feature film as producer 'To Nowhere' (Dir. Sian Astor-Lewis) in DMovies, one of the UK's biggest film blogs.
"Astor-Lewis centres on London, showcasing a city that’s far removed from the sprawling, metropolitan jungle often portrayed on other films. This is a London that’s as daunting as any city in the UK, a place strangely alien in the realm of cinema. If anything, it’s a truer depiction of London, ripping down the glamour for something harder and more realistic: this is the perfect environment for two adolescents to find themselves. Behind the metal bridges and barren pathways, come two individuals hoping to butterfly after they have cast off the shackles of oppression with alcohol."
