Grierson Award Nominated Documentary Feature. Film-maker and Labour voter John Walsh becomes a Conservative Candidate for a seat in a Labour heartland during the British 2010 General Election Campaign. What he uncovers is a place where intimidation and neglect have scarred a town that politics has forgotten. He goes on a quest to find the local absentee Labour Member of Parliament. Tory Boy is a political satire that cuts to the heart of the current British anger over politicians who have exploited a system for years. Working with news footage, animation and film from the campaign shot over six months, Tory Boy is a unique insight into the political culture of one of the world’s oldest democracies.
John Walsh (Director and star) will be attending the screening to talk about the film and what he found out about politics. All 15 council candidates have been invited, all 7 mayoral candidates have been invited, a number of local European Parliamentary candidates and a couple of local MPs have been invited too for good measure!
There is a cash bar serving beer, wine, soft drinks and snacks so the evening won’t be too dry!
