Distinctive, risk-taking British filmmaking, Martin Radich’s third feature is a visual and aural treat with a genre twist. Ostensibly a story of father and son involved in political terrorism, Norfolk uses its bucolic setting as a backdrop for revenge, familial breakdown and elemental violence. A disturbed mercenary known only as Man (Denis Ménochet) prepares for one final mission, only for his plans to be disrupted when his son falls for the girl living with the foreign revolutionaries he is targeting. This strange, often hallucinatory experience blends rural isolation, analogue technology, Rambo and the heavy weight of past tragedy on the present.

Followed by a Q&A. Tickets available from the Genesis Cinema website here.
