Marc Price’s 2nd feature MAGPIE is to be screened this March at the Cardiff Independent Film Festival.

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 Sunday 30th March at 16.00 in Porter's, Cardiff. The screening will be attended by director Marc Price, producer Justin Hayles along with cast member Craig Russell for a Q&A. Entry is free so get there early to ensure a seat!
