More Than Stories, Anya Lewin

Anya Lewin, More than Stories, Gordian Projects, 2019

We are very happy to be publishing Anya Lewin’s photo-text book, More Than Stories. The book examines the archive materials — photographs, newspaper clippings and other ephemera — from the research processes that culminated in her film trilogy With Heartfelt Gratitude for the Painless Treatment (2008), Chez Paulette on the Sunset Strip (2013), and Fez: The Royal Scent (2019).

Together with film and production stills, excerpts from the films’ screenplays, and Anya’s introductory text, the book interweaves the haunted memories of Jewish life embedded in her family stories, wandering through the cities that her father inhabited: Cairo, Berlin, and Los Angeles.

The launch of the book will coincide with an exhibition of all three films at the John Hansard Gallery in Southampton in February 2019, and will be available from their bookshop for the durarion of the exhibition, and is available now to buy from our website.
