Amy Black: Tat for Tit
Until 2011, Amy Black was a well-respected but straightforward tattoo artist, working on the bodies of the men and women of Richmond, Virginia, where she owns a small parlour. But one day she received a telephone call that would drastically change the course of her career.
The short documentary features Amy as well as some of the women and men whose lives have been touched by her work: the woman who longed to have nipples again as a gift for her husband, or the trans man who had the scarring from his breast removal covered in bright, glorious artworks, so people would ask him about the illustrations, not the scars. Amy's work changes lives.

The 82 Year Old Skydiver
At 82, Dylis holds the world record for being the oldest female skydiver in the world.
Full of confidence and liberated by her passion Dylis talks us through her mindset before each dive. She confides that her only worry when it comes to skydiving is refusing to get out of the car at the drop zone because she knows that if she backed out of a dive she would regret it. In her opinion “the ecstasy is far more than the fear”.
Dylis describes skydiving as “better than having sex”. Along with the enjoyment, it has given Dylis the courage she needed to start her own charity and share the uplifting energy with others.
The Oldest Racer
In this documentary we feature 75 year old cyclist Mick Ives. He explains what cycling means to him and how great of an impact the sport has had on his life. He hasn’t stopped cycling since the Autumn of 1956 and has won more national titles than anyone else in the country in multiple disciplines. Mick has been the UCI World Masters Cycling Champion five times, British national cycling champion 62 times (with 5 championships won in 2007). He was at one time, the manager of the Great Britain cycling team, and the National Coach, and is the winner of over 1000 races.
He looks back at the years on the circuit and notices that he can’t remember a former team mate or competitor that’s kept on cycling for as long as he has. Whether they temporarily quit cycling due to their families, jobs, or other responsibilities he admits that his selfishness is what’s kept him going for so long.

Great Success Comes from Great Support
The QFC’s latest brand ambassador, Ghanim Al-Muftah, is the focus of our new commercial, continuing the theme of ‘Great success comes from great support’. Ghanim is a young man who has already overcome numerous challenges and is an inspiration to many people, not just in Qatar but throughout the Arab world. In the ad we watch as he skateboards in a London park, and sense his feelings of freedom and exhilaration. As the ad ends though, our eyes shift focus to Mohammed Al-Muftah, Ghanim's father, who has consistently encouraged and supported his son to realise his potential and achieve success.
