Motorbikes, fast cars, punch-ups and 80s music! Set on the streets of 1980’s Bristol this retro flick follows a council estate kid out to settle the score with local thieves.
The Fence is the feature adaptation of the hugely popular short film
of the same name released on Youtube in 2018. Set and made in the
city of Bristol, the film is based on real life accounts from people who
grew up on south Bristol council estates in the 70’s and 80’s.
The story follows an 18 year old working class lad who has his
motorcycle stolen the day he buys it. He seeks the help of his
scoundrel friends and notorious older brother to track it down
before it’s gone forever. There is a strong moral theme examining
the culture of the period, peer pressures and difficult individual
choices. But ultimately it’s a fun film with heart, that combines
nostalgia, strong characters, comedy and a fast paced narrative.
Not to mention a terrific soundtrack of 80s music!
