Cuckoo preview with director Q&A

3 Dec

In 2004, brothers Richard and Tony Bracewell set up Norwich-based Punk Cinema to make independent British films. Their latest production Cuckoo, a creepy thriller about sound, is released 17th December 2011. Those in East Anglia, however, can enjoy a sneak preview at 6pm on Thursday 16th December at the Abbeygate Picturehouse in Bury St Edmunds, followed by a Q&A with writer/director Richard Bracewell.

Shot on location in London and on set in Norfolk, Cuckoo stars Richard E. Grant, Laura Fraser, Tamsin Greig and award-winning jungle/drum & bass artist Adam Fenton. The production notes describe Cuckoo as about ‘lies, paranoia and point of view… Alone in her flat, Polly struggles to keep her grip on reality. Mysterious sounds surround her, voices in the darkness, whispers of deceit. Polly knows she’s not cuckoo, but why won’t the noises go away?

‘A darkly atmospheric and compelling story of deception and intrigue… [with] a haunting soundtrack from BAFTA nominee Andrew Hewitt, Cuckoo teases and provokes as it heads towards its dramatic and shocking climax.’

You can view the trailer or read more about the film, including an interview with the director, in the production notes on distributor Verve pictures‘ website.

The Q&A will be hosted by local movie fanatic and blogger The Movie Evangelist.
