We would like to congratulate Charlie Lyne (OE2001-08) who won the short film category top award at the London Film Festival last Saturday for his 14 minute film “Lasting Marks”, which was produced and scored by Anthony Ing - another OE.
The film tells the previously untold story of 16 men who were put on trial for sadomasochism in the final days of Thatcher's Britain. At the time it was widely covered and sensationalised by the media, but “Lasting Marks” tells the story of the men involved.
Charlie is no stranger to major film awards, having previously won a British Independent Film Award (BIFA) for “Fish Story” in 2017. Charlie specialises in quirky documentaries and began his career with “Beyond Clueless”, a lovely and personal homage of the teen movie of his formative years. He is also a highly respected film journalist, blogger, and critic who writes regularly in newspaper and film magazines.
On Halloween, his excellent horror film documentary “Fear Itself” will be repeated on BBC4.
