Brochure Correction

Please note Possum screens from Friday 2 - Monday 5 November. The GFT November/December brochure has the incorrect dates.

The debut feature from writer/director Matthew Holness, co-creator and writer/star of the cult TV series Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, this psychological thriller pays homage to the British horror films of the ‘70s. The film’s abstract exploration of a man’s isolation and abandonment is accompanied by a compelling soundtrack from the legendary electronic BBC music studio The Radiophonic Workshop.  Disgraced children’s puppeteer Philip (Sean Harris), returns to his childhood home of Fallmarsh, Norfolk, intent on destroying Possum, a hideous puppet he keeps hidden inside a brown leather bag. When his attempts fail, Philip is forced to confront his sinister stepfather Maurice (Alun Armstrong) in an effort to escape the dark horrors of his past.

Q&A Screening

The screening on Saturday 3 November (20.15) will be followed by a Q&A with director Matthew Holness.
