An unsung gem of indie Brit cinema and a fascinating document of life in late-70s London, Nighthawks chronicles the double life of Jim, by day a guarded, vulnerable and semi-closeted teacher at an East End school, who spends his nights cruising gay bars and clubs.

This was director Ron Peck’s first feature, produced at Four Corners in Bethnal Green, which continues to support filmmakers from disadvantaged communities in the East End.
