Clio Barnard to film feature in Yorkshire
Yorkshire-born director Clio Barnard is returning to her home county to film her next feature, Dark River.
Little is known about the project in terms of plot, but Ruth Wilson has been mooted as the female lead, with principal photography due to get underway in the summer. PI subscribers can log in for the start date and crucial HoDs including the line producer.
Barnard, who directs Dark River from her own screenplay, first won critical acclaim in 2010 for her feature length documentary The Arbor, which she followed with The Selfish Giant in 2013 – both projects won several awards and nods, including Best Screenplay at the Evening Standard British Film Awards and British Film of the Year at the London Critics Circle Film Awards respectively.
Dark River has backing from Screen Yorkshire, Film4, the BFI and the Wellcome Trust, and is exec produced by Left Bank Pictures; Lila Rawlings, Suzanne Mackie and Andy Harries. Tracy O’Riordan produces for Moonspun Films.
