By way of introduction :

"Andrew Kötting is one of the UK’s most intriguing artists, and perhaps the only contemporary film maker who could be said to have taken the spirit of visionary curiosity and hybrid creativity exemplified by the late Derek Jarman, he is also a great collaborator, building a community of shared interest around his various projects, while anchoring his prolific production in an ongoing report on the lives of those closest to him."
Gareth Evans

"A sui generis stylist, Kotting is one of British cinema’s brightest hopes and definitely its wildest."
Jonathan Romney
