FUCKING SHEFFIELD

Kim Flitcroft

« Fucking Sheffield » is an emotional film of the human heart – of survival against all the odds and of the indomitability of the human spirit. Sheffield used to be the greatest industrial City in the world. It’s steel built the industrial revolution. But not any more. The steel industry has closed down throwing 100,000 workers onto the scrapheap. The City has tried to embrace the new industries – leisure, tourism, media, shopping, services – but it hasn’t worked and it isn’t working. This City is fucked. « Fucking Sheffield » is a film from the dark underside of the old Steel City. Cassi is a Lap Dancer at the Blue Minx Gentlemans Club, but her dancing days are numbered. Cassi wants to be a singer. Mick is a junkie who has lost everything to his heroin habit, everything except his beloved Vespa scooter. Stevlor is a photographer on a mission to prove that Sheffield is filled with beautiful girls. Glen returns home to Sheffield after ten years in life’s darkest places. There isn’t a bridge that Glen hasn’t burnt. With humour and tenderness the film follows these four characters as they face their crises and chase their dreams.
