There’s a wonderful interesting and eclectic range of British indie films and, having seen it last week, Burning Men is very much in the mould of original, cult classic-type film making. Directed by Jeremy Wooding, and co-written with famed music journalist Neil Spencer, the film comes to UK cinemas on 1st March.
When young musicians Ray (Ed Hayter) and Don (Aki Omoshaybi) are evicted from their South London squat, they decide to sell their precious vinyl collection and fly to Memphis in search of their destiny. Frustrated by the shortfall in funds, they steal an ‘uber-rare’ Black Metal record at a Camden record fair and head out of town to sell it. As they drive north in their beaten-up Volvo Amazon, picking up hitchhiker Susie (Elinor Crawley) en-route, they find themselves stalked by dark forces apparently unleashed by the ‘devil disc’ they have stolen.
