UK / 2001/24
When filmmaker Marc Isaacs decided to make a documentary about a lift of a block of flats in London, he had no idea how the residents would react or what they would reveal about their lives. He simply settled into the elevator with his camera and waited for the right moment to ask questions. The result is both humorous and moving. All British society is captured in this microcosm and the simplest of approaches becomes a parable of multiculturalism.
