SAT 01 OCT – ‘Norfolk’ (18)

Doors open 7:15 for a 7:45 start



Q and A with director Martin Radich

Distinctive, risk-taking British filmmaking, Martin Radich’s third feature is a visual and aural treat with a genre twist. Ostensibly a story of father and son involved in political terrorism, Norfolk uses its bucolic setting as a backdrop for revenge, familial breakdown and elemental violence.

A disturbed mercenary known only as Man (Denis Ménochet) prepares for one final mission, only for his plans to be disrupted when his son falls for the girl living with the foreign revolutionaries he is targeting. This strange, often hallucinatory experience blends rural isolation, analogue technology, Rambo and the heavy weight of past tragedy
on the present.

West Side Cinema is delighted to welcome director Martin Radich ‘In Conversation’, where he’ll discuss the making of ‘Norfolk’.

“Oblique, striking, dreamlike” Mark Adams, Screen Daily

“Stylistically arresting, narratively opaque tale” Guy Lodge, Variety

“The result is triumphant. Being able to believably render reality this unreal is a remarkable and mesmerising feat” – Thomas Humphrey, Cineuropa
