SON OF RAMBOW

Director: GARTH JENNINGS

UK| FRANCE| GERMANY / 2007 / 96 MIN / IN ENGLISH


A nostalgic comedy about two little boys with a big video camera and even bigger ambitions. A long English summer in the early ’80s, and two boys are about to form an unlikely friendship. Will Proudfoot has been brought up in a strictly religious household, forbidden to watch TV or listen to music. But after Lee Carter, the school trouble maker, blows Will’s mind with a pirated copy of Rambo: First Blood, Will is easily persuaded to act in Lee’s home-made sequel. Armed with only a camera – ‘borrowed’ from Lee’s brother – and their limitless imagination, the pair plot stunt after stunt, dodging teachers and family along the way as they do whatever it takes to finish their masterpiece in time to enter it into the National Screen Test competition. Animator David O’Reilly from Kilkenny is responsible for all the quirky animation sequences and graphic illustrations which feature in Son of Rambow. We are delighted that David will be with us after the screening to talk about his work on this and other films.
