Catch Me Daddy (Daniel Wolfe, UK, 2014)

Laila, a girl on the run from her family is hiding out in West Yorkshire with her drifter boyfriend Aaron. When her brother arrives in town with a gang of thugs in tow, she is forced to flee for her life and faces her darkest night.

Catch Me Daddy is at times very bleak, “a despairing howl at the state of contemporary Britain” as one critic put it. Or as some well-known Bradford graffiti used to say …it’s a mean old scene.

“The largely unknown cast's performances are exactly right: mimed distillations of moments of being and feeling.”
Financial Times

“In a boldly impressive debut, filmmakers Daniel and Matthew Wolfe paint a provocative and bleakly compelling picture of modern life that makes no attempt to soften the blows or smooth the edges.”

A bar will be open serving wines, beers and non-alcoholic drinks, popcorn and cake.
