Late September – Jim (Bob Goody) on the Swale Estuary

Following its premiere screening at last years Cambridge Film Festival, Jon Sanders’Late September” will be showing at the Gulbenkian Cinema in Canterbury on Thursday 16th August 2012, followed by a special Q&A session.

Late September takes place over 24 hours, in a beautiful Kent house and garden, and follows the course and aftermath of a birthday celebration organised by a middle-aged woman for her husband to whom she has been married for nearly 40 years. As the day and night progress, old rifts, new relationships and secrets emerge amongst friends, and the underlying tensions in the marriage can no longer be contained.

The film is directed by Kent born Jon Sanders, who has worked in the film industry for many years as an editor, sound recordist, documentary maker and writer/director. This is his third feature film, having previously directed Painted Angels (1998), starring Kelly McGillis and Brenda Fricker, and Low Tide (2008).

The film was shot in a house in Teynham and the Swale Estuary and was made on a low budget. Director Jon Sanders said: “We believe we have proved that it is possible to make a feature film of quality on a minimal budget.”

The film has already gotten some great reviews, after the premiere screening at last year’s Cambridge Film Festival and cinema release from June 2012.

“Absorbing […] examines the tensions and antipathies swirling just beneath the convivial surface of a small birthday celebration.” Anthony Quinn, The Independent

“A micro-budget Brit flick with an experimental flavour that generates real insights into married life.” David Parkinson, Empire magazine
