Biography

Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard are London-based artists and filmmakers. They met and began working collaboratively as students at Goldsmiths in the mid-nineties.

Their first feature film, 20,000 Days on Earth, premiered at Sundance in January 2014, winning directing and editing awards. The film, featuring Nick Cave, is also nominated for best documentary at the Spirit Awards and BAFTA. At the 2015 British Independent Film Awards, Forsyth & Pollard received the Douglas Hickox Award for Best Debut Director.

Performance and music culture plays a significant role in their work, and this has led to some notable collaborations. Their ambisonic sound installation with Scott Walker was presented at Sydney Opera House, a live performance, Silent Sound, was scored by Jason Pierce (Spiritualized) and their video work Walking After Acconci features the first on-screen appearance by Ben Drew, aka musician Plan B.

Their work is collected by museums and institutions worldwide, including the Tate Gallery. In 2009 the British Film Institute commissioned Radio Mania a multi-screen stereoscopic 3D video installation, their re-working of War of the Worlds Romeo Echo Delta was commissioned for BBC Radio and their first major outdoor public commission, Soon, came from the City of Toronto.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
