About this Event

Other Cinemas are delighted to be welcoming back Sean McAllister, this time for a screening of his most recent documentary, A Northern Soul. Sean will be joined in conversation by Ash Patel the manager of our beautiful venue, The Yellow, which is an important community space in Wembley Park.

A Northern Soul:

Sean McAllister returns to his hometown, Hull, as curator of its’ UK City of Culture opening. Back living with his 90-year-old parents and reflecting on changes to a city hit by cuts in public spending and divided by Brexit, Sean is drawn to the fringes of town where he encounters Steve – a struggling warehouse worker with a dream.

“This is not a story we see enough, despite the heritage of British documentary in this space – a deeply explored character journey through poverty in which those affected tell their own stories with dignity and respect. We don’t see it enough because there aren’t many other film-makers like McAllister…” – © The Guardian

Little White Lies ‘★★★★ A profound social document with gold in its soul. ‘

Hey U Guys ‘★★★★ A biting reality-check about issues that have wrung British filmmakers since the ‘50s ‘

Little White Lies ‘★★★★ a welcome antidote to the many grim representations of the poor.’

The Times ‘★★★★’
