what's it all about?

A Scanner Darkly, Barfly and Down and Out in Paris and London combine in S|T|R|A|Y|S, Barnaby Miller’s film about life for a diverse group of friends under the cosh in austerity Britain.

tell me more (don't worry, no spoilers)

Taking half a decade to complete, Miller shot this engrossing character drama, before painstakingly drawing over every frame. The result is a film with a unique, rotoscope aesthetic, with a feel both for its characters and the streets of London. 

With a cast of characters representing all walks of life – a banker, a blogger, an I.T. worker, a punk-poet, a businessman, and someone struggling on minimum wage – S|T|R|A|Y|S explores how a group of friends who all convene at the local pub are affected by the recent economic downturn.

Touching on issues of unemployment, housing, inequality and depression, this is a visually revolutionary film for our times.
