BLACK CAR HOME COMPLETED
Black Car Home, a cinema short starring Nadia Serantes and Jon Cleave (from the Fisherman's Friends) has in 2013 been shot and completed for entry to Cannes 2013. Written and directed by Arturi's David Pearson and produced by Arturi's Elizabeth Morgan Hemlock and Joanna Beard, it is a darkly comic vision of life lived in the rough during winter.
Black Car Home: when Tatiana, a feisty illegal Latin American immigrant, is thrown overboard and told to ‘swim’, she is expecting to find New York, not an isolated English coastal estuary. She is rescued from freezing weather by Nathan, a rough giant of a man who lives in a makeshift camp by the beach, and forages for food. When Nathan refuses to take her to London, Tatiana leaves him. She thinks he’s a bastard and he thinks she’s a “Zwodder”! She returns, in need of his protection and as their quirky friendship grows, they share a vivid experience from a surprise visitor, which set them both free.
Bouncing Back, a cinema feature, to be written and directed by David Pearson, and produced by Elizabeth Morgan Hemlock is in development supported by the Film Agency Wales. It is the inspiring story of a community struggling to recover from a disaster and achieving amazing results despite the odds as they work to recover and rebuild their lives, families and village. We are currently in discussion with a number of possible partners and has significant distribution interest.
