A chance to see a truly charming and touching London-set and shot indie film from director Mark Gillis, screening in one of the areas it was shot in. This is true low-budget filmmaking at its finest (think crowdfunding and credit cards), the Smoke Screen can testify. Read more about the film at its official website here.
In many ways indebted to the tough social realist films of Ken Loach, Sink nevertheless is also genuinely funny and left field much of the time. It’s about Micky Mason, a skilled manual worker who, since the Crash, can find nothing but menial zero hours jobs. He takes a course of action that is completely out of character, but it’s the only way he can see of keeping his family together. Director Mark Gillis will be in attendance for a Q&A after the show.
