Wray Day by Richard Woods

We featured a painting by Gloucestershire based artist Richard Woods before. Since then he's been busy capturing the both humour and horror of life in contemporary Britain.

Richard's work can be found on exhibition from the 28th November - 21st December 2009 at The Encore Exhibition at The Royal West of England Academy in Bristol.

Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Penny Woolcock (Tina Goes Shopping, The Death of Klinghoffer, Mischief Night) 1 DAY stars newcomers Dylan Duffus, Orhan Whyte, Yohance Watson and Tobias Duncan.

Flash (Duffus) wakes up to a phone call from Angel (Watson) announcing that he’s being released from prison and wants the £500k he’d left with Flash for safekeeping. Short of the full amount and pushed for time, Flash is forced to strike a deal with Evil (Duncan) who more than lives up to his name. 1 DAY follows Flash’s race against the clock as he’s pursued by a rival gang, the police, his three irate babymothers and his granny. Labled Britain’s first hip hop musical, 1 DAY boasts original music performed by the cast. The film mixes hip hop and grime tracks with gospel, reggae and spirituals providing a realistic, vibrant soundtrack to the story.

Filmed entirely on location on the inner-city streets of Birmingham, the film has utilized local talent both in front of and behind the camera, further enhancing the authenticity of the film. Penny Woolcock says: ‘Something terrible is happening to the young men in our inner cities. Boys are excluded from school; they then get bored and are easily drawn into street crime and drug dealing. Nobody cares that marginalised young black, asian or white men are killing each other. 1 DAY is a fiction not a documentary but it is telling a truth.’

1 Day is a Blast! Films production for Channel4 and Screen West Midlands - will be released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland by Vertigo Films on 4th September 2009.
