Marc Price’s recently completed 2nd feature MAGPIE is to receive its World Premiere at the Bradford International Film Festival this April.

Known for  directing of the £45/$70 zombie film COLIN, Price’s new feature is a dark relationship drama with significantly higher production value.

Financed by Emmerdale actor Dominic Brunt, it tells the tragic story of a negligent young father who returns home for his 9-year-old, shark-obsessed son’s funeral. An unwelcome guest, he steals the coffin and finds himself on the road with the child’s mother and two friends.

Shot on location in London, Cornwall and Price’s native Swansea without a script, Price instead opted to workshop scenes with the actors based on a carefully designed structure. What follows is a journey with no destination, just a desperate desire not to return.

MAGPIE will be screening on Thursday 18th April at 13.10 and Saturday 20th April at 13.00. The Saturday screening will be attended by director Marc Price, producers Justin Hayles & Helen Grace along with cast members Craig Russell, Phil Deguara and Alastair Kirton for a Q&A.
