Pond Life (15) with Writer & Cast Q+A

11 May 2019



It’s summertime 1994 in a quiet ex-mining village just outside Donacaster. Local teenagers Trevor, Pogo, Malcolm, Shane and David have nothing to do. When rumours of a legendary giant carp at the local ponds begin to swirl about town, this young community, led by Trevor, embark on a fishing expedition they will never forget. In a world of broken families, cassette tapes and rumbling political fever, these friends, each with their own struggles to bear, share a moment of harmony as they witness the carp for themselves.

With breakout performances by a cast of rising stars, the screening is followed by a Q+A with writer Richard Cameron and cast members Ethan Lee and Gianluca Gallucci.
