Director Bio

The Shammasian Brothers

P&I - Director Bio

Paul and Ludwig Shammasian are brothers and filmmaking partners. Sharing a strong ambition to make films, they quickly teamed up as directors, and their first ad won the Cannes Young Director Award. Their next film, Romans 12:20, went on to win awards internationally. Their debut feature, The Pyramid Texts, is a black and white film about the power of fear.



Part of the Best of British Strand


Thirty-something Malky works as a labourer demolishing the church where he was abused as a twelve-year-old, engaging in an emotionally distant sexual relationship with Emma and indulging in bouts of casual violence. The effects of his childhood abuse remain deeply embedded, and when the priest responsible returns to town Malky is forced to confront his past head-on. A searingly honest film about psychological damage and the power of forgiveness, featuring an outstanding performance from Orlando Bloom.
