A feature film shot almost entirely in Cornwall is due to have two special screenings with Q&A sessions in Truro and Newlyn.

Wilderness, the first feature film by London-based director Justin Doherty, and Cornwall-based Neil Fox, tells the story of John and Alice, who are in love... with the idea of John and Alice.

The film is a jazz romance set in the late 1960s that tells the story of John, a touring jazz musician who has never met a woman like Alice. That’s because there aren’t many women like Alice. Their love is urgent and physical and they have made heady declarations of devotion to each other.

Blowing out of the city like a whirlwind in the night, Alice and John flee to the coast. However, over the course of this romantic weekend getaway, they come into contact with strangers and friends and the bubble threatens to burst as they discover the vulnerabilities, flaws and manipulations that were previously masked by the blissful waves of new love.

The movie was filmed entirely in Cornwall, apart from the credits sequence, over a 13-day period in spring 2016, and marks the first output of the Falmouth University School of Film and Television Filmmaker In Residence commercial micro-budget project. It was financed by the university, produced in association with Baracoa Pictures and featured a large student crew in prominent roles.

Since premiering earlier this year at Cinequest in San Jose, Wilderness has been screened to audiences in Ireland, New York, Sweden, Johannesburg, Lagos, California, Kosovo and the UK, picking up awards along the way.

Wilderness will be screened with a writer Q&A at The Plaza in Truro this evening (November 22) at 8.15pm, and at the Newlyn Film House the following Wednesday, November 29, at 6pm.
