Project description

Giantland is a beautiful coming of age movie which follows the journey of a young boy Ryan, played by newcomer Mitchell Norman, as he meets an escaped refugee taking shelter in his woods, where he plays in secret away from his mum and her new boyfriend, who will never take the place of his father even though Ryan doesn’t know still who that is. The film has been described as “Whistle down the wind meets Kes.” The film also stars award winning actress Hayley Squires, Goran Bogdan and Joshua Herdman.

The script was originally Tribeca Nominated and is co-written written by Andy Porter and BAFTA nominated Director and Co-Writer Yousaf Ali Khan.

Producer Craig Conway was first introduced to the script on the set of Broken and very quickly it was decided that this would be the first of the three pictures for BB88.
