Red Herring

Dir: Kit Vincent
94mins   2023   UK   12A   English   

Followed by a Q&A with director Kit Vincent & post-film discussion supported by Lewes Death Cafe

When Kit Vincent, a young filmmaker, receives a terminal diagnosis aged 24, his first instinct is to turn on his camera and document those closest to him.

Kit's divorced parents are naturally having a hard time grappling with the reality of their son's illness, and his father, Lawrence, begins a transition of his own-a conversion to Judaism.

Following along with his father's process of grieving for his son's upended future, Red Herring captures the absurdity of the things we do to find solace in times of inexplicable tragedy.

In this personal and touching documentary about a life cut short, Vincent walks the line between humour and grief to helm this love letter to the relationships that keep us going through the dark stages of life.

'The work of a really talented film-maker' - Cath Clarke, Guardian
