Dir. Sean McAllister - 73min - 2018 - UK
Following 2015’s A Syrian Love Story, filmmaker Sean McAllister returns to his hometown, Hull, as curator of its UK City of Culture opening ceremony. Back living with his 90-year-old parents and reflecting on changes to a city hit by cuts in public spending and divided by Brexit, Sean is drawn to the fringes of town where he encounters Steve – a struggling warehouse worker with a dream.
"Trenchant and unsentimental but suffused with genuine feeling, this modest yet tellingly insightful encounter with everyday struggle is one of the truly essential recent British films." Sight&Sound http://ow.ly/4SrQ50DM6lt
