Featuring a Q&A with Writer Richard Cameron on Friday 3 May, 11am

It’s summertime 1994 in a quiet ex-mining village in Yorkshire. Trevor is treading on everyone’s toes at home as misfit Pogo is trying to make sense of the world. Lovesick Malcolm is trying to mend his broken heart and best friends Shane and David have nothing better to do. When rumours of a giant carp at the local ponds begin to swirl about town, this young community, led by Trevor, embark on a fishing expedition they will never forget.

With breakout performances by a cast of rising stars, and an evocative original score by Richard Hawley, this bittersweet debut feature sits alongside Billy Elliott and Brassed Off in the great British tradition of films about post-industrial communities.
