LCC BA (Hons) Film and Television 2012 films at BAFTA: Monday, 11 June 2012.
BONNIE WRIGHT, the Harry Potter star, will be showing her new short film alongside 12 others by talented LCC BA (Hons) Film and Television students at BAFTA on Monday, 11 June.
Her film, Separate We Come, Separate We Go, is an investigation of “the life beyond” – what there is to experience when you feel you’re locked in, that your horizons are limited by day-to-day life.
The film, the first to be made by her production company, Bon Bon Lumiere, was shot on location in Dungeness and Romney Marsh in Kent. It stars Harry Potter co-star David Thewlis as a lonely widower who builds a friendship with 10-year-old Thea.
Separate We Come, Separate We Go recently premiered at Cannes, where it attracted significant attention from international press and critics.
After ten years of wizardry, Bonnie has not given up acting. She is currently working on two films: a British period drama, In Want of a Wife, and a US independent film, Shakespeare’s Daughter.
Other BAFTA highlights include High Hopes, which also showed at Cannes, and is directed by LCC student Romano Pizzichini. The film follows the lives of two friends during a normal day in Homerton, East London. Kassel and Andre are both in their teens and looking for an escape from their humdrum existence, but selfish interests put their relationship into question.
The Sea at Night, directed by Karin Capurano, is the story of a man whose dream allows him to grieve the loss of his lover. Karin, from Rome, chose LCC’s BA (Hons) Film and Television for its world-class reputation, and has worked with a South Korean screenwriter and film crew from several other countries to produce their film.
“I realised that a lot of how we react comes from what we see in films, because we learn by imitation. We discussed the emotional reaction to death, and realised how different cultures react to major events like this.
“LCC is an amazing place for cultural exchange like this,” Karin says.
