A dark contemporary myth about England featuring highly physical storytelling, film and animation by the former director of our Associate Company, Rhum and Clay (64 Squares, A Strange Wild Song, Shutterland).
“In 1985, a fissure formed at England’s centre and split the north from the south. A giant tear through the landscape, a real gap, descending into an abyss of bottomless depth. And in the north, cut off, things began to stir. Beneath the moors and the rivers, in the valleys and by the sea.”
It begins with a phone call and some shocking news. A young man, seeking vengeance for the wrongs of the past, begins a quest that will lead him on an extraordinary, surreal journey back to where it all began: the dark and bloody heart of the North.
It’s a tale of dancing alone in clubs at 3am, the bad things that happen to us, and the stories we make up in response.
