Isla Ure

Isla is a writer and director with a particular interest in exploring the exchange between realism and the poetic, often in relation to psycho-social issues.

As well as having worked as a researcher, assistant and treatment writer for companies such as Camden Film Co (London), Wanda (Paris/London) and Ursula Rani Sarma (for BBC Ireland) she has spent many years teaching and mentoring young people and youth offenders with a range of special needs. She also held a long term voluntary post at Bristol Refugee Rights and continues to raise awareness and donations. This has all inspired much of her writing.
