Produced By Award-winning film companies Urban Apache Films, and World Serpent Productions

‘Lapwing’ is an immersive, visceral, yet tonal window into the life of a young woman who is forced to the fringes of Tudor society. Living within an isolated community on the Lincolnshire salt marshes, Patience embarks on a journey of self discovery beyond the ominous shadow of the community's violent patriarchal leader. Part psychological thriller, part love story, the film sets the contemporary and modern themes of immigration, otherness and the female voice and gaze, in a dangerous world where violence, superstition and vengeance reign.

The film stars Hannah Douglas, Emmett J. Scanlan (Hollyoaks, The Fall, Safe) and Sebastian De Souza (Skins, Ophelia, The Borgias).
