This afternoon’s films include:
When a young village misfit starts a job at the local apple orchard, the already cold relationship with his grandfather is challenged. This film was shot on the North Norfolk coast.
A contemporary Western set in the heart of rural East Anglia, The Knackerman tells the story of Ron – an aging Knacker who is responsible the disposal of ill horses. When his own horse falls ill, Ron must decide it’s fate and in doing so, face his own mortality. Starring Donald Sumpter (Game Of Thrones, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Adam Long (Happy Valley), The Knackerman was funded by Creative England and the BFI Network.
In a tale that highlights our increasing anxiety around our dependency on technology, a young girl wakes to find herself surrounded by floating screens that visualise every outcome of every thought and decision she might make. Will the character be able to navigate through the mountain of decisions the screens present or become lost in the surreal world of potential missed opportunities? This ambitious animation makes use of both 2D character animation and 3D CG elements that subtly flicker and warp between 2D to 3D as they struggle to conform to this surreal world.
A bullied teenager, fearing for his life, turns to an ancient creature of the forest for protection… and revenge.
Ruby is collecting pebbles, but Robby doesn’t feel very well. A day out at the beach leads to some tension for the young couple, but perhaps not how they expected.
A gentle little film from the Norfolk Coast that nevertheless deals with some adult themes – with just a hint of blood. And lots of stones.
A short craft film about the love of canoeing told by canoe builder Nick Hannington. Based just outside of Norwich, Nick hand crafts beautiful wooden boats which are the perfect vehicle to explore the UK’s wild waterways.
When news breaks that the county pig fete’s being revived, the once-legendary Farmer decides to make one final roll of the dice – and invest his life savings in a thoroughbred piglet with which to breed new life back into his now dilapidated farm. But when he puts young Edmund out to breed and the lad abstains, the Farmer’s forced on a journey that will challenge everything he thought he knew about pigs, love and the true value of life…
