Jonathan Bairstow created Prophet and Lo$$ in 1988 as his graduation film at the Royal College of Art. It’s safe to say that the film, loosely based on the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, has stood the test of time. I only discovered it recently (for shame!), and its hypnotic use of cycles and rich visuals keep drawing me back for repeat viewings. Nowadays, Bairstow runs the commercial studio Sherbet, which he co-founded in the mid-1990s.
