Heavy Load are latter-day punk: Lewes's answer to the Ramones. Most of them are also people with learning difficulties. Rothwell's funny, affectionate but frank film follows them as they try to move from benefit gigs into the mainstream. Will they ever finish the album? Will they survive schisms? Will they succeed in their campaign for the disabled to be allowed to stay out late?
Ticket also gives entry to the concert at 10pm at the Rugby Club
A fascinating movie, insightful but never patronising: this is no mock-umentary.
