    • Synopsis
    • Shot in a week by a lone woman filmmaker, this funny, moving, Grey Gardens/Maysles Brothers style cinema verite doc contrasts the lives of Ian and Robin, two alcoholic ex pats living in a squat next to millionaire yachts with the glamour of Cannes Film Festival. Life mirrors art as the filmmaker accidentally becomes homeless during shooting and turns the camera on herself.
