ALFRED & JAKOBINE IS A FEATURE DOCUMENTARY DIRECTED BY OUR CREATIVE DIRECTOR, JONATHAN HOWELLS. IT WAS COMPLETED IN 2014, AND HAS SINCE SCREENED AT OVER 15 INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVALS, WINNING 2 MAJOR AWARDS.  

A&J IS A DOCUMENTARY LOVE STORY, TRACING THE EPIC RELATIONSHIP OF ALFRED HOBBS AND JAKOBINE CORDES – STARTING WITH HER STOWINGAWAY ON HIS SHIP AFTER THEIR FIRST MEETING IN 1955; TO THEIR DEATH-DEFYING WORLD-WIDE JOURNIES IN A 1930'S LONDON TAXI; AND EVENTUAL BREAKING OF JAKOBINE'S HEART, WHEN ALFRED WALKS AWAY FROM THEIR MARRIAGE IN THE 1960S.

50 YEARS LATER, THE FILM FOLLOWS 84-YEAR-OLD ALFRED HOBBS, AS HE SELLS EVERYTHING IN ORDER TO RESTORE THE OLD TAXI, WITH A PLAN TO DRIVE IT ACROSS THE U.S. TO FIND JAKOBINE, AND OFFER HER ONE MORE RIDE IN IT, BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.
