Cloud Cuckoo Land
Cert: 12A Year: 2004 Length: 92 mins Language: English
Derek Jacobi, Steve Varden, Boo Pearce, Jane Wall
Shot near Keswick, this film received an emotional 5-minute standing ovation at its Italian world premiere in September 2003. Sandy Kenyon (played by debutant Steve Varden) dreams of becoming a pilot - his problem is cerebral palsy and serious mobility difficulties. Facing suspicion and hostility, his determination leads him into uncharted waters (for him) of daring, love and fulfilment. On reading the script and viewing test scenes, Derek Jacobi was eager to offer his help last summer, and shooting was successful despite some of the worst weather that the Lake District could throw at the crew while filming took place.
