John Robert Lee is the co-founder and director at Zebra Stripe Films. Born in Hampshire in 1992 and passionate about humanity, John went on to gain a degree in Documentary Film and Television from the acclaimed Newport Film School, Wales. Not For Money, Not For Love, Not For Nothing is a documentary in which the director wishes to examine real stories of loneliness, discretion, power, and control, from a variety of first hand opinions and vulnerable experiences. The diverse roles of the women in the documentary include an outreach worker, a brothel madame and individual sex workers, allowing for a self reflective space and an introspective sharing about a major element in all of their lives. With an ambition to tell more stories centred around complex situations, the director is a filmmaker who is driven by the beauty of humanity and the fragility of their experiences.
