Same But Different - March 2011

The Rural Media Company’s (RMC) Same But Different (SBD) film is a locally made film about rural equality issues in a predominantly rural county. It raises often hidden equality issues that are important to the wellbeing of everybody in the county of Herefordshire, especially because of the county’s rurality. It clearly illustrates the lifelong limits on health and wellbeing that inequalities bring in their wake in a most informative and entertaining way.

Same But Different has been awarded new funding from the Equality and Human Rights Commission to run screenings across Herefordshire in the coming year.

Avocado Music provided original title music for the project. Screened at Borderlines Film Festival 2011.

The Stories of Rust (April 2011 - February 2012)

In this tale of historical fiction Paul Peters wakes up one winter Sunday morning to find that past local heroes and villains from the nascent industrial revolution have merged with his own present day confusions. This nightmare seems to coincide with the extraordinary appearance of a rogue threshing machine in the hills of South Herefordshire England. Peters is privy to all the ups and downs, loves and battles of an honourable but struggling farming community that faces an agricultural upheaval the like of which has not been seen before. He comes to realise that this parable centres on his own family’s inability to come to terms with a childhood tragedy. Will he begin to distinguish between the real and the imagined events? Will he grasp this opportunity to avert his crumbling life by reconciling the gaping rift between him and his father and thereby begin to overcome his self inflicted guilt?
