We’re delighted to welcome director Jake Gavin and the cast of his new film Hector for special Q&A screenings across our cinemas.
Hector (15)Director: Jake Gavin.
Starring: Peter Mullan, Natalie Gavin, Laurie Ventry. UK 2015. 87 mins.
Hector has been living on the motorways for years. His once comfortable family life has been replaced by a never-ending tour of service stations that offer him shelter, anonymity, washing facilities and food. The story follows his journey south from Scotland on his annual pilgrimage to a temporary Christmas shelter in London where he finds comfort, friendship and warmth. Over the course of his Homeric journey, Hector decides to reconnect with his long-estranged past. As his previous life catches up with him, the story of how he came to be leading a marginal life begins to emerge.
Hector is proud be associated with organisations working with the homeless throughout the UK. By sharing our platform with local charities we hope to present an entertaining, thought-provoking film and offer the opportunity to discuss the process of filmmaking and the substance of the story with all involved.
