The Host

Directed by Miranda Pennell
United Kingdom, 2015


The artist’s investigation into her parents’ involvement with the Anglo Iranian Oil Company lead to her discovery of letters tracing a search for the origins of civilisation. The Host is about the stories we tell about ourselves and others, the facts and fictions we live by – and their consequences.
