The Doughnut Song

Jon Lawton & Rupert Murphy

A film produced by Bare, here's a message from directors Jon Lawton & Rupert Murphy:

An Antidote to World _______ Day

Whether you’re a ghost, a father, a woman or a cheese - there’s a day for everything these days.

Today is World Doughnut Day.

To inject some meaning into an occasion leveraging, world’s biggest doughnut sort of world, we’ve made a little film with a bit more meaning.

An ode to an under-appreciated artist, Ivor Cutler - who once wrote a lovely, weird, infectious song about a doughnut

This is for you Ivor
