A NEW BRITISH INDEPENDENT FEATURE FILMEGRESSION
From Imaginary Films 2000 comes a new 94 minute independent feature called 'Egression'. Set on the outskirts of London society, independently produced on a very low-budget over a two year period, this unflinching drama portrays three friends and their various addictions in an account of contemporary urban mores. Portraying casual violence and sex as everyday occurrences to Britain's under classes, the film takes an even darker turn when one of the lead characters commits suicide leaving the other two with the self-recriminations, grief and guilt that inevitably follow. Unapologetically European in outlook and aesthetics the film is aimed unashamedly at the Art-house market. In the vein of Jacques Audiard, the Dardenne brothers, or harking even further back to the cannon of the late Krzystof Kieslowski, this elliptical piece demands cerebral interaction from the audience. English films Egression could be compared to are Gary Oldman's 'Nil by Mouth', Mike Leigh's 'Naked', Andrea Arnold's 'Red Road' or 'Fish Tank', Steve McQueen's 'Hunger', the body of work of Ken Loach.
Interestingly the films main location was less than fifty meters from the main location of Mike Leigh’s latest film “Another Year” and will most probably portray a very different prospective to living in contemporary London.
