THE HULL PREMIÈRE OF THE SHORT FILM BALLS DIRECTED BY LILY COLE

HULL CENTRAL LIBRARY, Albion Street, Hull, HU1 3TF

5 Oct 2018

£8

As a mother I couldn’t imagine anything worse than having to give away my child, but in 18th-century England, thousands of babies were abandoned. It’s a world I’ve delved into for my new film, Balls, inspired by the character of Heathcliff.”

Co-writer and director, Lily Cole

This acclaimed short film, a co-commission with the Brontë Parsonage and RRU News based in Liverpool, is a powerful indictment of the treatment of poor women and their children. The film examines Heathcliff’s possible background through a poetic and poignant lens. It is unforgettable.

Bonnie Greer will be in conversation with Lily Cole and the film’s producer, Kate Wilson of Fury Films.
