Aquarius brings Rachel Okine home to form triumvirate

Polly Staniford and Angie Fielder have strengthened their global reach with Rachel Okine, known here for her work at Hopscotch and eOne.

The dynamic duo of Angie Fielder and Polly Staniford is about to become a trio, having enticed Rachel Okine to join them in Aquarius Films as their new managing director.  

Aquarius is an increasingly successful enterprise which created attention with the Cambodia-located Wish You Were Here which opened Sundance in 2012. Lion, produced by See-Saw Films in association with Aquarius, was an international success. TV comedy series The Other Guy from Matt Okine and pre-teen sci-fi mystery series The Unlisted are both doing fine overseas through Hulu and Netflix.
