A real-life action hero in the makingShortwave is a 52 seat independent cinema and cafe bar based in Bermondsey, less than 10 minutes walk from London Bridge and Borough tube stations. It features a great bar with locally brewed gems, and a lovely outdoor area to make the most of the last of summer. For this one prepare for Kung Fu Elliot.
Elliot “White Lightning” Scott plans on becoming Canada’s first action hero with his low-budget karate epic, Blood Fight. This surreal documentary captures two years in the lives of a passionate amateur filmmaker, his supportive partner Linda, and their outrageous cast, all of them trying to realise their dreams. With everyone’s hopes pinned on Elliot, this comedic-drama unfolds into a shocking and complex examination of how we lie to ourselves.
Running time: 1 hour 21 minutes.
