The BSL Zone is proud to announce that two of our dramas, 50/50 and Life Out There have been selected to be shown at European film festivals!
Both dramas were made by Bristol-based VS1 Productions, and were written by James Banks and directed by David Ellington.
50/50 is a comedy drama about two chancers, Andy, who is Deaf, and Jez, hearing, who are broke and living in a van. After their other ideas fail, they dream up what they think is the perfect get-rich-quick scheme. But can they get away with it?
Meanwhile, Life Out There is a comedy-drama with a supernatural twist about Billy, a young man who is a UFO spotter. After being humiliated on national television, deeply unfashionable Billy begins to wonder if there is more to life than his job in a costume shop and caring for his ungrateful father.
Congratulations to James, David and the cast and crew of both films!
50/50 will be shown at Berlin's Gebaerdensprachfilmwoche, which takes place from 25 to 28 September. For more information, click here. The film can also be seen on this site by clicking here.
