The Arbor wins London Awards

The Arbor, based on the life of Bradford born Andrea Dunbar, won the award for Best British Newcomer for director Clio Barnard at the London Film Festival last night. Jury member, screenwriter, Tony Grisoni commented: “This film, which touched all of us, both challenges conventional filmmaking and at the same time engages with real lives. A stunning debut.” Barnard also won the Sutherland Award for most original and imaginative feature. Andrea Dunbar shot to fame with her play Rita, Sue and Bob Too! that launched at the Royal Court and subsequently made as a film directed by Alan Clarke. Andrea died aged 27 in 1990.
