True Calling Screening & Director Q&A

October 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

TRUE CALLING is a new movie from director Erik Knudsen about a politician facing a spiritual crisis on the eve of an election. Made during lockdown 2020 with a tight-knit crew, Erik’s latest feature film is on general release in the UK and Ireland over the autumn.  This event is a one night special featuring Q&A with Director.
True Calling screens in Nottingham, along with an introduction and Q&A from the director, on Thursday 14th October at 6pm. The event will give audiences a chance to hear about the themes behind the film, and the making of it. If you would like to attend, please find a ticketing link below.
Very much a film for our times, True Calling finds ambitious young UK government minister Josh (David Smith) in a spiritual crisis on the eve of a critical pre-election debate. Poised for success, Josh presses pause on his political campaigning and spirits himself to the Yorkshire hometown he left years ago. Once there, he strolls the streets and countryside, reflecting on the man he was and contemplating the man he wants to be.  Meeting up with his former love Maddy (Eliza Marsland), herself facing a crossroads in the form of her imminent wedding, the pair discuss their past, what could have been, and how they each now fit into a changing world.
Taking a graceful detour through UK politics, humanity and purpose, Erik Knudsen’s film tells a timeless story of love, longing and regret, infused with an observant spiritual tone reminiscent of landmark cinema classics such as Denys Arcand’s Jesus Of Montreal, alongside the warmth and humanity of Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise.
If you would like to attend the event or arrange a group visit True Calling screens at The Savoy Cinema, tickets are onsale HERE, with prices starting at £5.
