Filmed in Durham and Newcastle and produced by Newcastle-based Tall Tree Pictures, Harrigan is currently screening at venues in the region. The run will be feature two Q&As, featuring director Vince Woods and writer Arthur McKenzie, at Customs House in South Shields and Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle on 28 and 29 September.
Harrigan (15) explores the dark heart of the North East during the grim and gritty 1970s as power cuts and coal strikes brought England to its knees.
Stephen Tompkinson (Brassed Off) stars as Detective Sergeant Barry Harrigan: the community’s last hope for law and order as fear and desperation takes hold.
Developed from a screenplay by former local Detective Chief Inspector Arthur McKenzie, the film aims to present an honest portrayal of the North East during one of Britain’s most tumultuous decades.
