A First Class Viewing Experience
Fractured Visions and Cardiff Independent Film Festival are proud to announce a very special screening of the BAFTA Cymru-winning THE LIGHTHOUSE.
Based on the infamous Smalls Island Incident of 1801 THE LIGHTHOUSE follows Thomas Howell and Thomas Griffith's disastrous posting to Smalls Island Lighthouse to “keep the light” 25 miles from land and surrounded by the deadly Irish sea. The men are stranded in a freak storm that rages for months, nothing short of an act of God. The film tells a tale of death, madness and isolation; a desolate trip into the heart of human darkness.
As dark and intense as it is gripping and thrilling, THE LIGHTHOUSE is one of the finest Welsh films to surface in the new millennium. Featuring blistering performances from Mark Lewis Jones (STAR WARS VIII: THE LAST JEDI, GAME OF THRONES) and Michael Jibson (THE RIOT CLUB, PANIC BUTTON) and masterfully directed by Chris Crow (DEVIL’S BRIDGE, PANIC BUTTON), THE LIGHTHOUSE is a must-see for anyone with a penchant for the dark side of cinema.
Fractured Visions’ Phillip Escott will be in conversation with director Chris Crow, producer David Lloyd and star Mark Lewis Jones following the screening to discuss the creation of the film, which was included as part of Ffilm Cymru’s bold new Cinematic scheme, created by in partnership with BBC Films, BFI and S4C, to help bring emerging Welsh film talent to the big screen. This will be an essential masterclass for both aspiring filmmakers in the South Wales area as it will film fans and should not be missed by either!
