I am Sam Christie. I've been a tree surgeon, the drummer for Michael Head & the red elastic band (among others), a bbc radio producer, an english teacher, Mountain Leader and an academic. what I love most of all though, is making films. 

I make documentaries, both short and long. Some of these are more experimental than others, but they all chase an elusive structure in this confusing world. I want to one day find the truth about something; the pure unadulterated truth (whatever that is). To date I haven't got there entirely, but I'm still hunting with the same energy I started with.


I'm currently working on new films following the recent completion of my latest documentary short, OUTOFHERE, a film shot in Gjilan, Kosovo which has been selected for the Respect Human Rights Festival in Belfast.. I'm always looking for collaborations and ways to get back out there.
