Backyard Cinema Cuban Screen Outdoor Screening: Hyena
London-based crime drama screening in the heart of the capital
Backyard Cinema have teamed up with Camden Market to bring you their very own outdoor summer film festival set across two screens. Sink into giant beanbags and lounge on deckchairs as you enjoy a selection of films, all served with fresh burgers, craft beer, cocktails and a decent helping of live DJs. Adventure through the alleys of Camden Market to find the intimate courtyard hosting the Cuban Screen stage. Here, you will find a more unusual range of indie flicks, moving documentaries and foreign language films. Tonight’s offering is Gerard Johnson's 2014 crime drama, Hyena. This film follows Michael Logan (Peter Ferdinando), a violent, corrupt and usually high copper who gets the job done. However, life is about to get far harder on his patch. Expect violence, suspense and a whole lot of thrills on the streets of London. "Hyena is startling, claustrophobic and penetrating in its analysis of the blurred lines involved in doing good." – Time Out "Writer-director Gerard Johnson and chameleon-like star Ferdinando continue to impress with their strong collaboration here." – Empire Certificate: 18. Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 50 minutes. Please note that your email address will be passed to the event organiser as these details act as proof of purchase and are required to gain entry.
"Powerful and, at times, unwatchably violent thriller."
