Precious Little is a series of films of edited interviews of young people talking about love and loss. Participants are asked about swapping homemade music compilation tapes with friends and lovers as a trigger for talking about relationships through a
shared love of music. The resulting frieze of personal portraits and stories channels Iain and Jane’s continued engagement with the ‘soundtrack underpinning contemporary life’.
