“Playing out as a taut political thriller with a dizzying number of twists and turns.”
“An unusually compelling film.”
“Gripping for all the right reasons.”
A year in the making, this documentary explores the life and death of the British businessman Neil Heywood whose murder led to the downfall of one of the most powerful men in China.
First shown on Channel 4 in November 2012.
The film included extensive dramatised reconstructions, which I directed, shot and lit myself.
It was nominated for a Golden Nymph award at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, 2013.
