Love is where you find it in Jumbo, a quirky charmer of a debut from Zoé Wittock, 'inspired' by a true story. Awkward, painfully shy Jeanne (Noémie Merlant from Portrait of a Lady on Fire) lives with her blowsy mother (Emmanuelle Bercot) and works as a cleaner at an amusement park. Out of the blue, she finds happiness with Jumbo - the park’s newest ride. Every touch of cold metal or oil oozing from this mighty inanimate object fuels her infatuation, convincing her that her feelings are reciprocated. Can Jeanne find love and understanding with her fairground attraction?

This screening includes a Q&A with Director and Writer Zoe Wittock.

UK Premiere. Thanks to Anti-Worlds
