"Go Home"


GO HOME dir. Harry Lighton

Go Home is a drama about a Polish single-mother subject to abuse from a bunch of xenophobic local youths. It was inspired by the series of hate crimes against Poles in the wake of Britain's exit from the EU. Alicja lives in Romford with her two daughters, Agata and Kasia. She struggles to balance the demands of her two daughters with the need to make a living running her Polish corner shop. In the aftermath of the EU referendum, Alicja’s shop comes under fire from the youths. Spurred on by their ringleader Leanne, they vandalise the shop with graffiti, and kick a homeless man’s dog to death on the doorstep. Tensions rise as racist slurs and mocking orders to "go home" leave Alicja feeling a stranger in the community she’s lived in for over a decade. Worn down by all the abuse, Alicja’s eldest daughter expresses regret at her Polish ties in a confrontation with her mother. A desperate Alicja decides she must act to defend both her pride in her heritage and her right to call Romford home.

SYNOPSIS

On a Sunday morning, 21 year-old twins George and Ben leave the house, telling their family they’re going to a birthday party.  In fact, they travel by car to the seaside town of Hastings where George has arranged to meet a man he’s met online.  Though Ben has agreed to come along in case things go wrong, he is clearly uncomfortable with the idea.  As they drive, George sits in the passenger’s seat making the odd feeble attempt at conversation, and drinking in an attempt to steady his nerves.

Arriving in the run-down seaside town, they head along the promenade to the place where George has arranged for the meeting to take place – a public toilet. The film explores how the event unfolds, how the brothers react when things get out of control.

Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Moors,  ‘A Lone is a new short film written and directed by James Parris. ‘A Lone’ plays on the power of a solitary mind to conjure and terrorise, exploring what it means to be truly on your own.  At the same time, it taps into a rich seam of folklore concerning the supernatural dangers of the wild: changelings and will o’ the wisp drawing inquisitive souls off the path. A Lone is a psychologically stimulating micro-short, which pits the intensity of one man’s horror against the vastness of an uncaring landscape. 

A Lone has been sponsored by outdoor clothing company Fjällräven. Principle Photography took place over the May bank holiday weekend. 'A Lone' is currently being edited by Emmy Award Winning Editor Beverly Mills.
