A Northern Soul (15) + ScreenTalk

A Northern Soul

BAFTA nominated documentarian Sean McAllister (A Syrian Love Story) returns to his hometown, Hull, as curator of its UK City of Culture opening.

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.

The screening is followed by a Q&A with producer Elhum Shakerifar, and BoC Creative Director Sam Hunt, hosted by Gali Gold, Head of Cinema at the Barbican.
