A Bunch of Amateurs
Only a miracle can save Britain’s oldest amateur film club from its final demise. Sometimes miracles come from unexpected places.
The most quintessentially British working-class filmmaking club, BRADFORD MOVIE MAKERS’ members grow old amid flickering memories and the brutal reckoning of their final years. Desperately clinging to their dreams, and to each other, fueled by endless cups of tea, this quietly hilarious, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly speaks to the delusional escapist dreamer in us all and to the need to spend time together face to face in an increasingly lonely, digital age.
