British surrealist Leonora Carrington was a key part of the surrealist movement during its heyday in Paris and yet, until recently, remained a virtual unknown in the country of her birth. This film explores her dramatic evolution from British debutante to artist in exile, living out her days in Mexico City, and takes us on a journey into her darkly strange and cinematic world.
A Ronachan Films and Erica Starling Co-Production

Premieres at the Hawaii International Film Festival : November 5th 2017
Soaring at 28,000 feet without a drop of fuel, nothing is predictable. Not the weather, not the technology. And certainly not the fate of a man, alone for five days in a fragile, first-of-its-kind aircraft with nothing but ocean below. Point of No Return takes you behind the headlines of the first solar-powered flight around the world—where two courageous pilots take turns battling nature, their own crew, and sometimes logic itself, to achieve the impossible. Not just to make history, but to inspire a revolution.
Directed and produced by Noel Dockstader & Quinn Kanaly of Farwest Films
Executive produced by Angus Macqueen

An intoxicating piece of filmmaking by Teresa Griffiths.
OINK – Life in Eight Chapters
Angus Macqueen’s darkly comic exploration of the sentimental and violent relationship between man and pig: Margaret Atwood and Animal Farm weave into China’s obsession with the pig and hog hunting from helicopters, along with xeno-transplantation into a baboon and the end of antibiotics, to make a well spiced dish. All presented by Dorothy, our very own pig.

A Ronachan Films production for ITV
In the 30 years after the Second World War, half a million women had a child adopted – most were babies born to unmarried mothers.
This documentary special in the Exposure strand reveals the stories of some of the many thousands of women pressured by Church and State into giving up their babies for adoption.
Decades later, women are breaking the silence to tell the truth about this injustice.
Produced and directed by Alice Perman
Executive produced by Sam Collyns
