News: London Screening For Josie Long Feature Debut Super November

A screening in London has been confirmed for Josie Long's feature film debut, Super November.

It is at Rich Mix in East London on April 20 as part of the East End Film Festival.

The film, set in Glasgow and co-starring Scottish actor Sean Biggerstaff, has been described as a “mixture of mumblecore romantic comedy and Orwellian dystopia”. It is directed by Douglas King, who Long also worked with on the short films Let's Go Swimming and Romance and Adventure.

Long spoke to me about the film in 2016 and explained how it was made on a shoestring: “We realised that we couldn’t get actors to work unpaid for a month but thought we could get them for two weeks, so we did a two-week shoot in May and have another one in October. The idea is that it starts off as a relationship story about slackers and then there is a military coup in Scotland and it becomes a thriller. It was supposed to be a satire, not a documentary.”

Filmmaker Douglas King and Josie Long are expected to attend and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
