ABOUT THE FILM 2019 | 15 | 119 mins

As the Germans retreat from a sector of the frontline, a British advance is planned. However, with field telephone lines down, two young lance-corporals Schofield and Blake are entrusted with a dangerous mission: cross No Man’s Land and deliver a message warning their comrades – including Blake’s brother – that they are walking into a trap that could cost the lives of thousands.

About Bristol Film Festival

Bristol Film Festival was started by director Owen Franklin in 2015. The Festival provides an alternative experience for lovers of film and cinema, and celebrates the cultural landscape of his home city, Bristol.

The concept is simple: to bring classic films back to the big screen, in some of Bristol’s most iconic and interesting venues, including Bristol Museum, Clifton Observatory, Bristol Cathedral, and Redcliffe Caves.

The films and locations are carefully matched together, and involve unique immersive elements - whether it's live performers, tours of venues after hours, or themed wine tastings, you can expect to leave one of our events having had a film experience unlike any other!
