“Tragic, earnest and beautifully acted”

“An extraordinarily accomplished work.”

“Desperately acute on matters of jeaousy and grand passions”

“A touching and beautiful story that lends itself perfectly to the stage.”

In 2013 Mephisto began co-producing an untitled documentary documentary on bullfighting, directed by Stevan Riley, the Academy Award-nominated director of the 2015 Brando documentary Listen To Me Marlon (on which Fiske-Harrison was consultant) – and co-produced by John Battsek, Academy Award-winning producer of One Day In September.

Fiske-Harrison also consulted on the 2014 documentary Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles directed by Chuck Workman, Academy Award-winning director of Precious Images.
