THE GATHERERS 20TH ANNIVERSARY
Sept 2018: Ian and producer DARREN MAPLETOFT returned to Barrow-in-Furness for a special 20th anniversary screening of their digitally restored cut of THE GATHERERS at The Forum theatre.
Joined by cast and crew from the distant past, it was fantastic to catch up with old faces and meet a new generation still intrigued by this tale of the free spirit of Barrovians.
THE GATHERERS AS ART EXHIBIT
Oct 2019 - Jan 2020: SIGNAL FILMS place THE GATHERERS on three month rotation in BARROW DOCK MUSEUM'S West Coast Photo photography and film exhibition.
Ian:"I'm honoured and proud to have this vintage work included as an exhibit alongside such luminaries (and influences!) as Martin Parr and Eve Arnold. I'm touched The GATHERERS has even been considered. Thanks to Julia Parks at Signal for championing us and keeping my connection to my beloved Cumbria alive."
