Director Bio

Lisa Downs

P&I - Director Bio

Lisa started her documentary career at 19 and has since been working across TV broadcast, factual entertainment, documentary and fiction. The documentary LIFE AFTER FLASH is her latest film. She is currently working on a slate of feature documentaries that look at enduring and iconic films, and the effect they have had on generation after generation.


Life After Flash


A fascinating exploration into the life of Sam J. Jones, beginning with his name-making lead performance in the 1980 fantasy classic Flash Gordon, that establishes what makes Mike Hodges’ film so iconic and enduring. Sacked from the film prior to its completion (his voice was dubbed by another actor), Jones’ subsequent career took many turns before he embraced his brush with stardom. He now attends conventions (with real enthusiasm) and has seen his performance celebrated in the Ted comedies. A life-affirming tribute to the film and its star.
