Dir. Elaine Constantine, UK, 102mins, 2014
Northern Soul is the story of a youth culture in the 1970s which changed a generation.
No longer satisfied with the prospect of a small town life and a factory production line, two young boys dream of going to America to discover rare records which will help them become the best DJs on the scene. This journey forces them to confront rivalry, violence and drug abuse and their friendship is pushed to the limit.
Part of a programme of events for the Visible Girls: Revisited art exhibition. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Gill Soper, original Visible Girl and Northern Soul choreographer.
