Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Henry Blake

WITH: Conrad Khan, Ashley Madekwe, Harris Dickinson and Marcus Rutherford

We are delighted to welcome Producer David Broder and Director Henry Blake for an extended intro for the film on Tuesday 22nd and a Q&A on Wednesday 23rd.

A powerful drama about a mother and her fourteen-year-old son who is groomed, and subsequently trapped, into a lethal nationwide drug selling enterprise. A 'County Line', is a term used when drug gangs from cities expand their operations to smaller towns, often manipulating children and vulnerable people to sell drugs with devastating consequences. This debut film from writer/director Henry Blake is inspired by his first-hand experiences as a youth worker, working on the frontline of child exploitation and drug trafficking in the UK.

The Cambridge Film Festival is presented by the Cambridge Film Trust, a registered charity with a mission to foster film culture and education for the benefit of the public, in Cambridge, the Eastern region and throughout the UK.
