Us Among The Stones is the second feature from British director D.R. Hood (Wreckers).
At their crumbling farmhouse on Dartmoor, a family gathers to celebrate what will probably be their free-spirited matriarch’s last birthday. Once a wild-child of 60s bohemia, Marianne is dying, but shes not going quietly. She has controlled the men in her family for decades, but now long-buried secrets and resentments come to the surface. For her son Owen, recently separated from the woman he loves, it will be an exploration of his ties to home and family and a journey of liberation.
Filmed mainly around Widecombe on the Moor, Devon and shot to great effect on multi-media (including 35mm stills camera, pinhole camera and iPhone), Us Among The Stones is a fragile, yet relatable family portrait starring a great cast of cherished and emerging British stars including Lawrence Fox Anna Calder Marshall, Sinead Matthews and Greg Hicks.
This screening will be followed by a special Q&A with the director, D.R. Hood.
