After twenty years together, Sam and Tusker’s blissful life has been shattered following Tusker’s diagnosis with early onset dementia.

Intent on spending as much precious time together as they can, the pair travel across England in their old campervan, visiting loved ones and returning to special places from their past. But as Sam and Tusker’s trip progresses and they are forced to confront the grave reality of their situation, rifts begin to emerge as they look at what the future may hold.

Driven by two beautiful performances from Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci as a couple with a long history and an uncertain future, Harry Macqueen’s (Hinterland) introspective road movie is a deeply affecting and quietly provocative exploration of love in the face of tragedy.

Screening in partnership with Queer Vision, Bristol Pride's Film Festival.

Screenings from Fri 2 July will include two shorts:

What If? Dir Teresa Garratty 9:50 mins

After a bad break-up, Jess focuses on rebuilding her life and her self esteem. Dating someone new might help, but what if it all goes wrong? Only one way to find out.

Liberty Dir David Ellington 10:45 mins

"The cold, cold shudder / of a world craving / blood, blood, blood. / Every day blood. / Leeching my freedom. / My freedom. / I will fight / to save my freedom." David Ellington brings to life his poignant and political BSL poem, Liberty, in a new highly-visual, poetic and physically realised short film commissioned by Ad Infinitum and HOME. This filmic poem draws on visual vernacular and BSL to examine what sets us apart, and what unites us. David has been collaborating with Ad Infinitum since 2016 and we are delighted to be able to commission him.
