This Filthy Earth (BFI) in June
BFI have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of This Filthy Earth on 22nd June 2009 priced at £19.99 RRP. A tragic tale of rural passion and survival, Andrew Kötting’s film is inspired by Emile Zola’s novel The Earth and John Berger’s Pig Earth and is co-written by Andrew Kötting and comedian Sean Lock.
This Filthy Earth is the tragic story of sisters Kath and Francine whose lives are disrupted by two men – a brutal villager greedy for the girls’ land and a gentle stranger who offers the possibility of escape. Amidst a landscape of rural hardship and a community consumed with superstition, events unfurl which threaten their sibling bond.
