"Outlanders" was screened to the GFS membership during our 2009-10 season.
This feature film was directed by Dominic Lees, who we are proud to say was a long standing member of GFS. It was also co-written by Dominic with Jimmy Gardner.
The synopsis of this drama/crime/thriller film: "After his father's death, Adam hitchhikes to London from his hometown in Poland to find his older brother, a former Polish football star, now supplying illegal migrant workers to the booming construction industry in London. To the impressionable young man it seems his brother has everything - wealth, status, women. Adam soon discovers that beneath the surface glamor lies a dark heart of betrayal, corruption and murder."
The film won 3 awards: Gibara International Non-Budget Film Festival Best Feature Film Award (Jury Prize) in 2007, Gibara International Non-Budget Film Festival Best Picture Award (Grand Prize) in 2008, and Ourense Independent Film Festival Best Actor Award in 2008.
Following the film Dominic held a Q&A session with us which gave a fascinating insight into the film making process.
