US National Board of Review of Motion Pictures honours 'Conspiracy of Silence'

The US National Board of Review of Motion Pictures has honoured British filmmaker John Deery and his debut film 'Conspiracy of Silence', which joins the company of 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and 'The Passion of the Christ' as the three films that received 'Special Recognition of Films that Reflect the Freedom of Expression'.
With no commercial ties to the industry, the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures screens over 300 films per year in order to honour the very best in a variety of categories. The NBR will mark its 96th Awards annual gala at the Tavern on the Green on January 11 2005 in New York City.
Originally trained as an actor, writer/director John Deery worked his way up through the film industry to first assistant director, working with a number of notable directors including Hugh Hudson and Stephen Poliakoff. In London, he attended the National Film and Television School.
In 2001, Deery was presented the Hartley-Merrill International Screenwriting Prize at the Cannes Film Festival; and was subsequently invited to attend the Sundance Screenwriters' Lab where he developed the story for Conspiracy of Silence and raised financing.
