Firstsite will be screening My Feral Heart on Friday.
This is a defiantly Made in Essex film that is starting to gain something of a reputation around the country.
It stars Colchester-based actor Steven Brandon, and was directed by Essex based Jane Gull. It is the perfect repost to all of those National Theatre live link ups that Firstsite seems so keen on putting in place.
As for the plot?
“The film’s storyline revolves around a sudden bereavement that throws Luke (Steven Brandon), a fiercely independent young man with Down’s syndrome, into a daunting new environment where he finds unexpected support from his feisty, streetwise carer and a local heir dealing with his own demons.”
There will also be a Q and A with both Steven Brandon and Jane Gull following the screening.
Tickets are £8 (£6 concessions / £4.50 members), with a 7:15pm start time.
This all makes us very nostalgic for the ACE Colchester Film Festival 🙁
