The only chance to see this film on screen at Newcastle, don’t miss Been So Long at the Tyneside Cinema.
Directed by Tinge Krishnan, adapted from Ché Walker’s hit stage play and retaining Arthur Darvill’s original songs, Been So Long is a contemporary musical set on the streets of London’s Camden Town. BAFTA winner Michaela Coel lights up the big screen as dedicated and whip-smart single mum Simone whose encounter with the confident yet secretive lothario Raymond, played by The Pass star Arinzé Kene has her head spinning.
The film is followed by a Q&A with director Tinge Krishnan, producers Nadine Marsh-Edwards and Amanda Jenks, and hosted by the curators and agency-for-change Birds’ Eye View’s Mia Bays (producer of Oscar-winning and multi-BAFTA nominated films) and Jo Duncombe (BEV curator and creative producer Influencer Programme). Plus cast and other special guests TBC.
Following there’ll be a DJ set in the bar after showcasing songs from the film.
