Devon filmmaker Nick Cooke is working on a new film project entitled MulÃ³ a modern ghost story set within a Roma migrant shanty camp on London’s hidden fringes, and they’ve just launched the crowd funder.
Nick grew up in Chelston, South Devon, and spends his time between his family in Torquay and working in London.
Back in 2013 a short film project he shot entitled “Miss Todd” won the student academy award in LA and a number of other student projects he’s worked on have received similar success. You can find out more on Nick’s website.
A few years ago we featured him on D&CFilm about a project his film “Torquay“.
For MulÃ³ he’s working in collaboration with director Linda McDonald Cairns.
The film tells the story of Nicu, a Roma man beset by misfortune who is desperate to provide for his family back home, when he witnesses a murder. Trapped in a web of isolation and coercion, he is forced to make a difficult decision with haunting consequences.
The film explores homelessness, migration and the pressures that drive good people to dark places.
The project was developed by the funding body Film London and the crowd funding campaign will help produce the film.
