“Boy in the Back Seat”
1986. A young boy is left unattended in the car while his volatile dad takes care of some 'business' in a dodgy local pub. What could possibly go wrong?
I'm interested in ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Working class stories from a Northern (England) perspective. I like to create work that has magical realism at its core. The film tackles a complex subject and acts as a reminder to us all not to just carry on as we have before. It's a bold, edgy and urgent film about toxic masculinity and the damage we pass on to the next generation.
