A Documentary Film By Nathan Hannawin And Paul Sng.
Nottingham rapping post-punks Sleaford Mods’ upcoming documentary Invisible Britain is part band doc, part exploration of the class inequality in the UK. It follows the duo on a recent tour of the UK and visits many places that have been forgotten, and many would rather ignore wholeheartedly.
The doc is inspired by the likes of Patrick Keiller’s Robinson Trilogy, the wanderings of Iain Sinclair, and the biting J.G. Ballard quote, “The future is just going to be a vast, conforming suburb of the soul”. It was directed by Nathan Hannawin and Paul Sng, and combines conversations with and live footage of the band, interviews with fans, and explores what communities are doing to battle ‘austerity’.
The film is screening in Nottingham and London this October with live Q&A’s with the directors. Tickets for the London screening at the Doc’n Roll Film Festival at the Picturehouse Central cinema on Saturday 3rd October at 3pm are available for £15 here.
Tickets for the Broadway Cinema show in Nottingham screening at 8pm on Saturday October 10th are £12 (£10 concessions). Jason Williamson from Sleaford Mods will also be taking part in the Q&A at the Broadway.
