I’ve been a keen follower of the work of director Kieran Evans ever since the DV experimental documentary Finisterre he co-directed with Paul Kelly for Saint Etienne in 2003.

We discussed capturing a unique cinematic view of Liverpool and how themes of nature’s cruelty informed the tone and structure of the film.
What they go through isn’t a romance, it’s like two atoms colliding. It’s about two people looking for answers.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
