This year`s Flatpack film festival in Birmingham (4th – 9th April) will feature a never-seen-before music documentary about one of England`s most promising and unconventional rock bands. The duo “Sleaford Mods” from Nottingham is singing about timeless problems like unemployment, underfinanced towns and hopelessness in a monotonous world, all topics which especially appeal to young people. One of these young people is Christine Franz, a former LTS student from Aston University. Right after listening to the band for the first time it was clear to her that she had to do a music documentary about this exceptional band. The result is a highly anticipated documentary about two musicians following their dreams against all the odds.
The documentary will experience a limited UK cinematic release this spring and is definitely worth watching, especially because it was made and directed by one of our former students, Christine Franz.
