Friendship, First Loves, Rebellion! Young Hearts Run Free is a coming of age story about a teenager learning to value his community and appreciate collective action.
1974; during a violent miner's strike in a quiet Northern village a teenage artist falls for the new girl from London, but their attempts to escape make him betray his family, community and best friends. With political protests and the working class suffering under a crumbling economy, the 1970s setting has parallels with today. Young Hearts Run Free is an uplifting and soulful mix of 1970s styles, romance, teenage rebellion and gritty social realism.
Debut feature made on a micro-budget has grabbed national press attention (Total Film, The Guardian), won festival awards in Britain, USA and India and has been released in cinemas around the UK. Now being released in the USA
Screenings include Q&A with Writer-Director Andy Mark Simpson
