Shot on 35mm and hailed as the most original British film of the modern age, new comedy ESSEX SPACEBIN is like nothing put to film before.
The cult narrative of ESSEX SPACEBIN pushes comedy into uncharted territory as we follow the adventures of the lovable Lorraine Willy, a middle-aged woman who has suffered a life of mental illness.
Lorraine believes she has been infused by God with a divine purpose that only she (and an Intergalactic Rasta named Hogan) can fathom. She begins her journey looking for a "star key" - which she believes can help her access a parallel world known as the 7th Realm where she hopes to meet the maker.
Seeking to conquer time and space with help from her friends & family, a Nissan Skyline and a PDF of Amen-Ra's original Essex Pyramid construction specs, will Lorraine herald the existence of a portal to another world?
ESSEX SPACEBIN is a singular and very British comedy written and directed by David Hollinshead & Philip Thompson. Starring Lorraine Malby, Caryl Griffith and Joerg Stadler.
"The most excited about a troma film i've been since the Toxic Avenger" LLOYD KAUFMAN "
...Incredibly funny... Very, very strange and completely unique" CASSETTEBOY

Synopsis: Amongst the 2011 London riots, a former boxer, Stally, must choose between his lower class past plagued by crime or a new future in a middle class society that he doesn’t fit into. Will he choose to go back into his life of crime and save the life of his best friend? Or will he choose to step forwards to be with the love of this life, Mermaid and his more comfortable and alien life?
THE LONDON RIOTS - A BACKGROUND: Between 6 and 11 August 2011, thousands of people rioted in several London boroughs and in cities and towns across England. The resulting chaos generated looting, arson, and mass deployment of police and resulted in the death of five people. Disturbances began on 6 August after a protest in Tottenham, London, following the death of Mark Duggan, a local man who was shot dead by police on 4 August. Attributions for the rioters' behaviour include structural factors such as racism, classism, and economic decline, as well as cultural factors like criminality, hooliganism, breakdown of social morality, and gang culture.
Marcus Flemmings “I’ve never wanted to make a straightforward council Estate/Gangster film. SIX ROUNDS hopefully doesn’t act as one.”
SIX ROUNDS is written/directed by Marcul Flemmings and stars Adam J Bernard, Phoebe Torrance, Santino Zicchi, Daniel Jones, Rob Peacock, Chris Rochester, Thomasin Lockwood, Carolyn English, Joseph Warner, Lesley Molony & Karishma Bhandari.
SIX ROUNDS will be released this Spring on flixpremiere.com
