John T. Davis
John T. Davis is internationally recognised as Northern Ireland’s most distinctive documentary filmmaker and cinematographer. Davis’s decidedly creative documentaries cover many subjects, but are drawn together by common threads: autobiography and self-portraiture through the lives of others, journeying and the quest for spiritual meaning, marginal places and outsiders, and music ranging from punk rock to gospel, western swing to dancehall reggae.
