Gypsies fly to the final frontier

Filmmaker Alex Taylor: making a short in E8


ROMANIES in space? Young Hackney film director Alex Taylor, whose seven-minute short Kids Might Fly, is winning many awards around Europe, has started writing the script for a full-length movie about Roma in space, along with a second fantasy feature.

Such projects cost big: any City types up for a left-field investment?
Taylor is also ready to start work in the E8 area on filming his next short, which he describes to Loving Dalston as “a visionary/fictional documentary about three East European girls who perform home-made (not traditional) exorcisms on Londoners”.
