A free screening of 'A Room for Romeo Brass'
A free screening of ‘A Room for Romeo Brass’, selected and introduced by artist Naomi Frears.
The story of two twelve-year-old boys whose friendship is tested by an older interloper. ‘A Room for Romeo Brass’ is in part inspired by writer and director Shane Meadows’s own youth in the Midlands. A moving coming-of-age film that is by turns harsh, humorous and unsettling. The main protagonists, Romeo Brass and Gavin ‘Knocks’ Wooley, are neighbours on a housing estate and neither has an easy home life. They first meet the slightly older eccentric character of Morell when he steps in to help fight off a group of bullies, but as the new relationship progresses, and Morell begins to pursue Romeo’s older sister, a wedge is driven between the friends.
Naomi Frears is an artist based at Porthmeor Studios, St Ives. She works across media, making films as well as printmaking and painting.
CAST Café food from 6pm, something hot and something sweet from £7.50. The screening will begin at 7pm.
