Hebden Bridge Picture House has been chosen as the UK premiere for a film set in Yorkshire.
Five Pillars, directed by Jon Rosling, stars Tom Bott, Aaron Jeffcoate and Halifax born actor Adam Probets, and its UK premiere follows on from an initial screening in Lublin, Poland, at the Kinoteatr Projekt film festival last weekend.
It premieres at Hebden Bridge this Saturday, December 14, when the show will start at 5.30pm, following a press and media call at 4.45pm.
Adam, who has family in the upper Calder Valley, said the theatre had been chosen for its ambience and a good ticket price, an ideal environment to enjoy the film.
It tells the story of ex-soldier Darren who finds himself back in England feeling disenfranchised by a society struggling to find an identity.
His best friend Paul has moved away to university while his other friend Gary has joined the extremist ranks of the far right National Defence League. Even Paul’s teenage brother, Billy, is a changed character from the young boy Darren used to know, now edging towards a mind-set of violence and hate as he comes of age.
Darren’s former girlfriend, Sophie, has also grown distant. Unknown to him her mind is pre-occupied with problems of her own - namely a secret one night stand with one of his best friends. His only connection is with his estranged grandfather, Graham. However when Sophie is propositioned by a young Asian boy called Yusuf, Darren’s grip on sanity slips further and encouraged by Billy and Gary he heads towards punishing Yusuf for what he regards as a provocation.
Tickets are £7 and available from the box office during opening times and on the door on the night.
