Bottle is a film about two young people growing up in a northern ex-mill town facing the challenges of no work and the ever present lure of easy money from drugs and crime.  The story is of Lee (Lewis Todd) and his girlfriend Kelly (Emma Hughes) and how their seemingly good luck turns sour and how the two face up to what seems like an insurmountable twist in their life.

Why Make a Film?

The Lund Park Group has had over ten years experience of working across the white,  Bangladeshi and Pakistani  communities in Keighley, West Yorkshire with the aim of  challenging  negative perceptions and building a vibrant area in which to live and work. David Halsall set up the film project to build on this work by involving professional filmmakers to get young people to engage in important issues in a non-threating way.


The film has been directed by David Beaumont, a professional filmmaker who grew up in the area and now  lives in Todmorden. David Beaumont said:
“When I first came across the group they were enthusiastic and committed to the project but didn’t have any real experience of making short drama  films. We have put together a team of professional filmmakers to work together with local actors and crew to produce what I think will be something we will all be proud of”
