Bold cinematic storytelling with heart and soul
Dom & Joe (Joseph Curran & Dominic Aubrey de Vere) met whilst working at an Arthouse cinema in London, bonding over obscure cinematic delights, and haven’t looked back since..
Naturally drawn to epic, real world narratives they quickly gravitated towards documentary and have spent 4 years honing an approach that focuses on immersing the viewer in something subtly stylized.
Their work benefits from the strong relationships they build with their contributors; they pride themselves on having a very personal connection to each project, imparting a remarkable intimacy to the finished work.
Like Herzog, a great inspiration, Dom & Joe gravitate to unusual stories that demand a champion, someone willing to go the extra mile to shine light into the furthest reaches of the human experience. This doctrine set them on a course to one of the world’s remotest islands, Saint Helena, where they have been filming their latest feature documentary, A Story Of Bones.
The duo uncovered the hidden story of one of the largest burial grounds of first generation enslaved Africans in the world. The film charts the experiences ofNamibian Environmental Activist Annina Van Neel as she fights for the proper recognition and memorialisation of the site. Annina is locked in a struggle against a UK Government that refuses to take responsibility for the atrocities of it’s past.
