Huntington Gardens // Sky Arts/Art 50
Commissioned by Sky Arts as part of Art 50, Huntington Gardens is a short comedy that centres around three families; the Morris', Rogers' and Amin's, living on the same suburban street and their daily war over who gets the best parking spaces.
Like most people in the country we have been left very confused and frustrated by the whole Brexit Saga, both from the government’s response and the public reaction and we wanted to try and find some humour hidden in amongst the absurd mess.
However, unlike Brexit, we didn't want to alienate anyone in the country, we wanted to tell the story of division and anger in a way that related to everyone and and we felt that Huntington Gardens and its inhabitants would act as a perfect microcosm of Post-Brexit Britain, because what could be more British then getting angry about parking spaces?
The film stars Kacey Ainsworth (Eastenders, Grantchester), Paul Putner (Little Britain, Stewart Lee's comedy vehicle), Kelly Adams (Hustle) and Amerjit Deu (Holby City, Dumbo)
'Overall, Huntington Gardens is a comedic gem. Short and sweet, it knows exactly what it wants to do and it tells its short, silly story to near perfection.' ***** UK Film Review
