Andy Mark Simpson is a talented young northeast filmmaker who’s created his first feature – a gritty 1970s-set tale of first love set in a quiet Northumbrian village. Teenage artist Mark is stuck in a community in turmoil, and against a backdrop of a crumbling economy and strikes at the local mine he finds himself caught between attraction to new girl Sue, up from London and turning heads, and his best friend Claire.
This brilliant new feature is another example of the talent that we have living and working in the north east, and we’re thrilled to welcome Andy Mark Simpson, director of Young Hearts Run Free, to the Tyneside on Wednesday 13 April to talk about his experiences making his film.
