'Charlie Robins's engrossing video for Imanbek & Goodboys slips gracefully from documentary to drama to full-blown surrealism in this story of a high-stakes horse race within the traveller community.

With access to a hidden world, courtesy of the Frankham family, scions of the London traveller community, Robins chronicles the bond between a young man and his horse, and the conflict with a rival that leads to a thrilling event that could only happen within the community - a horse-and-trap race down an English country lane.

Robins and his DoP Pieter Snyman deliver this action sequence with thrilling camerawork, and then add a layer of impressionistic visuals that elevates the piece to another level. That makes this a very rewarding, genuinely cinematic experience.'
