Hull Film Festival: GWEN
03/07/2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm£6 – £8
At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS
A mysterious — and suspicious — run of ill fortune plagues a teenage girl and her mother and sister on their hillside farm in this folk story set in the dark hills of Wales during the industrial revolution.
In the stark beauty of 19th Century Snowdonia a young girl tries desperately to hold her home together. Struggling with her mother’s mysterious illness, her father’s absence and a ruthless mining company encroaching on their land. A growing darkness begins to take grip of her home, and the suspicious local community turns on Gwen and her family. Anchored by terrific performances, Gwen is a stylish, atmospheric anti-patriarchal take on folk horror.
Starring Maxine Peake, Richard Harrington, Eleanor Worthington-Cox
“Clever, beautiful and well-acted, Gwen proves to be an unexpected delight. It’s a slow burn, but one worth seeking out.” – Joe Lipsett, Bloody Disgusting
GWEN is rated 15. Please see the BBFC website for more details (may contain spoilers).
