Premiere of ‘RESOLUTION’ – A film by Neil Kemp & Nathan Loynes. SOLD OUT

June 20 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm


The Tap & Barrel is pleased to present a new film by Neil Kemp & Nathan Loynes: RESOLUTION.

The premiere will be hosted by interviewer Baz Bradley who will discuss the movie with film makers Neil and Nathan prior and after the screening. There will also be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions. And if this wasn’t enough there will be a after-party with the directors turning their talents to the record decks and letting their vinyl collections loose.

Set in the north of England, RESOLUTION is a 10 minute poetic monologue from a teenage girl – Kairos – cut to narrative scenes based around the themes and social issues of teenage identity formation, race, gender, youth, child separation and parental alienation.

RESOLUTION illustrates Kairos’ emotions about the break up of her family and her trying to make sense of it all through eastern philosophies and self-actualisation.

Ultimately, it’s a journey that illustrates what it means to be a young person in modern Britain, with an underlying positive message that aims to re-assure and inspire a young audience.

The lead is performed by a very talented local Leeds actress – Tillie Amartey – who started out as a resident presenter on CITV and was seen in a lead role on on a Sky TV production – David Walliam’s ‘Ratburger’ over Christmas 2017. She is currently a regular on CBBC’s ‘Almost Never’. The film also features stellar performances from the supporting cast, all Leeds based – Justin Archibald, Sukai Morton, Charlotte Robinson & Ste Pye.

The industry crew includes debut writer / directors Neil Kemp (Clubaholic / LNADJ Saved My Life) & Nathan Loynes (Leeds University Child Mental Health Studies), cinematographer Ben Saffer (Black Mirror / Riviera) and music composer Steve Edwards (Bob Sinclar’s ‘World Hold On’).

Now they have this film in the bag, the next step in the intrepid director’s plan is to enter ‘RESOLUTION’ into the film festival circuit. Watch this space – it’s history in the making!
