One hot summer’s day, Rose (newcomer Zamira Fuller) longs to see her mum (Beth Orton) but nobody will take her. Her father (Muhammet Uzuner), struggling to cope, disappears to work, her sister (Sophie Burton) waits to meet a boy on the local golf course and her brother (James Stuckey) is preoccupied at home communing with spirits online.
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.
Clifton WI has been asked to help support women in UK film-making by publicising a crowd-funding project. Light Years, made by independent film company Third Films, is directed by BAFTA award-winning film maker and photographer Esther May Campbell and features the acting debut of acclaimed singer/songwriter Beth Orton.
It is planned to show the film at the Watershed on Saturday 24 September, and in order to make this happen the promoters are seeking pledges of £12 for a ticket.
