Film description

Summertime, 1994. In a quiet mining village just outside Doncaster, a rumour stirs about the legend of a giant carp in the nearby ponds. Trevor takes watch one night at the water’s edge. The following night, he decides to lead a brigade of friends and neighbours on a fishing expedition. In a world of broken families, cassette tapes and rumbling political fever, these friends, each with their own struggle, share a moment of harmony as they witness the carp for themselves.

The first feature of acclaimed theatre director Bill Buckhurst, Pond Life sits in the great British tradition of films about post-industrial communities, and is accompanied by a fantastic original score by Richard Hawley, 

“One of the rare films that makes magic out of the mundane”
