The Crack

This lively debut feature from Northumberland-raised Garry Sykes mixes documentary and reality TV techniques to tell the story of one eventful Saturday in the lives of eight Byker teens. Tracy Bell, Byker's queen bee, is having a bad day's hangover. Her new bestie Chloe was seeing her brother Liam til last night's party when she got with another lad, Chris, 'the magic trick guy'. With her wing-girls Sarah and Becca at her side, Tracy's out for blood. Across town and out of her depth, Chloe's running scared into the arms of old friends, Isla and Nicky. Today all of these girls are headed into town on a collision course, all fights, attention, tears and takedowns building towards the Saturday night party to end them all.

Conceived and filmed in Newcastle Upon Tyne and shot on a microbudget with a cast of young local talent, the film brings to the screen a fresh, lively tale of friendship on the forbidden side of town.

This screening will feature a Q&A with filmmaker Garry Sykes and members of the cast.
