'Huntington Gardens' by Simon and Paul Wade
Art 50 commissioned Huntington Gardens, a short comedy that centres around three families; the Morris', Rogers' and Amin's, living on the same suburban street and their daily war over who gets the best parking spaces. The film stars many well known faces from TV including Kacey Ainsworth, Kelly Adams, Paul Putner and Amerjit Deu.
The film was directed by Paul and Simon Wade ‘Like most people in the country we have been left very confused and frustrated by the whole Brexit Saga, both from the government’s response and the public reaction and we wanted to try and find some humour hidden in amongst the absurd mess.
However, unlike Brexit, we didn't want to alienate anyone in the country, we wanted to tell the story of division and anger in a way that related to everyone and and we felt that Huntington Gardens and its inhabitants would act as a perfect microcosm of Post-Brexit Britain, because what could be more British then getting angry about parking spaces?’
This film will be available on demand on Sky Arts from midnight on 25th March 2019.
