Knights with smartphones. Oven-Cooked pizzas. Ancient nations that teem with scheming kings, troll warriors and fiendishly complicated Wi-Fi passwords. This is the tale of the Harriers, a chapter of peaceful knights from Hackney, East London, who are engaged in a fantasy epic that mingles the mysteries of the medieval with a melange of modern-day myth-making. This saga was presented for viewing as six short episodes together with a live performance. We asked folk too to pledge your allegiance. No pizza will be supplied to audiences on the night. This is non-negotiable.
The Mustering Of The Harrier was in the making for 12 years. A mythology for the International League of Harriers, a passion project where Hugh platted his artistic pursuits together into one pointed piece. It materialised as a six part fantasy Epic. Another collaboration with Charlie Doran as director, continuing their joint success
It flourished as a live screening. It had premieres in London and Dublin. Also selected by the Shebeen Flick Berlin Film Festival for a special performance in Berlin. Hugh is currently writing season 2.
