The Five at Five: Team Choice
5 Nov 2020
The Five at Five is a download of the best things to read, watch, shop, and get inspiration from. This week’s selections have been curated by our very own team.
Here’s what’s keeping us going in turbulent times.
The Business of Aspiration by Ana Andjelic. Andjelic has a unique ability to synthesize the business of cultural creation, as well as to cut through the noise of trends to focus on the more significant story - what fundamental things connect us to one another.
Barr, US Marketing Manager
Portrait of a Lady on Fire by Céline Sciamma. This is a beautiful film with wonderful cinematography that presents the power of the female gaze, and exposes what's been missing in film. It has a finale to rival that in Call Me By Your Name.
Henry, Sales and Operations Manager
I've really been enjoying the Annie Mac Changes podcast. She interviews everyone from Zadie Smith to a former far-right extremist, about the biggest changes they've overcome and how they affect change. It feels pretty apt for a world experiencing so much change at the moment.
Sarah, High Street Portfolio Manager
Maud and Mabel for beautiful ceramics on dark days, Iota Edit to make a home filled with art and Present & Correct for making work beautiful.
Alex, Data Scientist
Imad Alarnab. A Syrian refugee who overcame an incredible challenge to successfully rebuild his restaurant career in London, and consistently finds new ways to give back to his community. He also makes the tastiest falafel in town and may be the nicest human I’ve ever met.
Becky, Strategic Partnerships
