Spirit of '58 [Forthcoming]
A heartfelt look at hope, football, the father-son bond, and pre-millennial working-class Manchester. Forthcoming on general release.
A young man lives in a derelict East London council flat alone, with only the things he hears and reads for company amidst the claustrophobia. His daily routine and reason behind it, which at first seems harmless, only becomes clear as he descends into a state of madness, along with his shocking intentions.
The film is a comment on the negative influence of the media and society in creating paranoia and racial tension in modern-day London. Directed by Patrick Nicholls.
