Film: A Northern Soul
6 October-13 October
Steve, a struggling warehouse worker, dreams of spreading hip hop on the Beats Bus
Sean McAllister returns to his hometown, Hull, as curator of its UK City of Culture opening. Back living with his 90-year-old parents and reflecting on changes to a city hit by cuts in public spending and divided by Brexit, Sean is drawn to the fringes of town where he encounters Steve – a struggling warehouse worker with a love for hip hop, who takes his Beats Bus through the city’s toughest estates in search of homegrown talent.
“Class and chance collide in Sean McAllister’s brilliant film, as young performers are guided through their home’s transformational year as UK city of culture”
– Charlie Phillips, The Guardian
