PAUL DALY



Using the fragility and impermanence of 16mm film, I have documented social history throughout England during a decade of great divide and unrest, encompassing the breadth of this country's society and diverse culture.

Further works explore mortality, masculinity, solitude, and ritual, referencing and dissecting my upbringing.

In 2022, my film Mirrors, supported by BFI Doc Society, premiered in the International Short Competition at Sheffield DocFest and was later longlisted for BIFA Best Short Film.

My first feature documentary, Shadows, is now in production and examines class structure, identity, and the balance of power in England.

SHADOWS





Documentary | 16mm | 4:3 | 40 min


It’s the day that separates the night, the shadows by which we recognise the light.

Shadows observes strike action, protest, class, subculture, royal pageantry, and the upcoming general election.

Currently in production.
