BAFTA winning-director Esther May Campbell will follow the screening of her Light Years film at Studio 74 at the Exeter Phoenix with a special Q&A.
Light Years is a ‘poetic and startling story of loss, hope and human connections’, and it’s Esther’s debut feature film.
Esther bagged the BAFTA gong for her short film September in 2009 (beating Sam Taylor-Wood’s Love You More in the process -how about that for some creative chops!)
Here’s the story of Light Years:
One hot summer’s day, Rose longs to see her mum (Beth Orton) but nobody will take her. Taking destiny into her own hands she sets off alone deep into England’s forgotten edge lands to reach her. Rose’s odyssey provokes her disconnected, fractured siblings and parents into a poignant reunion to face their challenges together.
The film will be followed by a Q&A session. The Q&A will be moderated by Dr Felicity Gee, Lecturer in International Cinema and Director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Film Research at University of Exeter.
And if you want to know what other’s have said of the flick, here are couple of quotes. ‘A feature of fragile beauty’ according to the London Film Festival; and ‘An enticingly sensuous, heat hazed drama’ says Variety.
Don’t take their word for it, pop along yourself.
The screening and talk takes place on Tuesday, November 15 at 7pm. Get your tickets!
