Dead Cat will be showing on Saturday

Award winning film Dead Cat is showing at Kilburn’s Tricycle Theatre on Saturday as the British Independent Film Festival comes to a close.

It is the debut film of director Stefan Georgiou and stars Sebastian Armesto, both of whom featured in Screen International’s ‘Star of Tomorrow 2011.’

The romantic comedy follows the story of childhood sweethearts Michael and Kristen who, after ten years apart, are thrown back together as they enter their thirties.

But with nothing but a gang of dysfunctional friends to help them rekindle their relationship, can their second chance of love be sustained beyond nostalgia?

Dead Cat explores the trials and tribulations of reuniting with your first love and, as Georgiou puts it, the film is a “quirky take on contemporary relationships in London.”

With young actors Tom Mison (One Day, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen), Johnny Palmiero (Bonded by Blood, The Kid) and the soundtrack including music from Dry the River, Sound of Guns and Chad Valley, Georgiou has brought together a wealth of young British talent.

The film opened the London Independent Film Festival earlier this month and won three awards at the Festival, including the British Lion award which recognises the best achievement with a low budget.

Georgiou grew up in Southgate, North London and studied at the National Film and TV school, producing short films that screened on TV and at festivals across the UK and abroad.

He is already working on two more projects as he explores different feature film genres.

After Saturday’s screening, Georgiou will host a Q&A about the film along with the rest of the cast and production team. To catch the screening of Dead Cat before the end of May’s British Independent Film Festival, head down to the Tricycle Theatre on Kilburn High Road at 3pm on Saturday.
