Stroma Cairns

Stroma Cairns released her first short film, Style Brokers, while still at university; and her talent was immediately recognised by the BFI who included it in their BFI Shorts series.

Cairns has an intimate, genuine approach to directing, which translates particularly well to documentary work. She is known for directing music promos with a fresh British aesthetic.

Anoushka Shankar
"Land of Gold (feat Alev Lenz)"
Anoushka Shankar's release 'Land of Gold' is a response to the plight of refugees, who not only suffer the loss of their home and their way of life but who are turned away from the places to which they flee for sanctuary. To emphasise this, the accompanying promo from Stroma Cairns features two girls from different backgrounds playing together in the concrete jungle; unaware of any cultural divide.
