Cinema Pond Life + Director Q&A (15) 99 minutes

It’s the summer of 1994.  In a quiet mining village just outside Doncaster, a rumour stirs about the legend of a giant carp in the nearby decoy ponds. Young Trevor takes watch one night at the water’s edge. The following night, he decides to lead a brigade of friends and neighbours on a fishing expedition.

In a world of broken families, cassette tapes and rumbling political fever, these friends, each with their own struggles to bear, share a moment of harmony as they witness the carp for themselves that they will never forget.

The first feature of acclaimed theatre director Bill Buckhurst (accompanied with a fantastic original score by Richard Hawley), Pond Life sits in the great British tradition of films about post-industrial communities.

Join us at our screening on Monday 1st July as we welcome the director Bill Buckhurst for a Q&A.
