Short summary

An independent self-funded feature documentary about the real state of the so called 'British Film Industry' in light of the recent closure of the UK Film Council and the uneven playing field of the current tax credits set up for the UK. The film starts with a warning from the film maker, Sir David Lean in 1990, about the future for young new film makers. The documentary meanders through a cast of contributors. This ranges from upcoming new UK film makers from the grass roots to film maker veterans, politicians, Hollywood insiders, and personnel entrusted to nurture, support and promote new film makers from various parts of the UK. The thread of the story questions the measuring of attainments from bureaucracies such as the UK Film Council, to the gateways now available to British film makers, access to a paying market, and recognising the true value of culture in reflecting our own unique stories. How does Britain compare to smaller economies such as France, Denmark, India, Australia...
