Maverick writer Susana Medina & internationally acclaimed artist Derek Ogbourne have joined forces to co-direct Leather-bound Stories.

A film sequence and a collection of shoes conspire to reveal a family secret
leading to a mesmerizing meditation on the social, psychological, spiritual
and sentimental life of things. A prism of a film in which fiction and poetic
essay interlock, Leather-bound Stories is a profound and witty tale about
being immersed in a world of things and fetishes where objects have become an
inextricable part of our landscape.

Based on Medina's novel Philosophical Toys and narrated by Melancholy Maaret,
this short piece features a fascinating mix of professional and first-time
actors: Rhonda Austin, Paul Prescott, Sophie Woolley, Jasmina Erdevicki, Olly
Beck, Emilio Villodres, Ilze Black & Tony Ryder

Award-winning Susana Medina is the author of Red Tales (forthcoming in 2011);
the acclaimed poetry and aphorisms collection Souvenirs from the Accident and
Philosophical Toys, her first novel in English - an offspring from which is
the highly praised short film Buñuel's Philosophical Toys (24 mins), shown
across the UK.

Derek Ogbourne is best known for video works such as 'Gravity and Others',
'Struggle' and 'Magic Mountain', as well as the cinematic piece 'Death and the
Monument'. His latest installation, The Last Image, Museum of Optography is
currently touring in various museums across Europe.
