March 21, World Down Syndrome Day, is a fitting finale to My Feral Heart’s breakout big-screen success story. Director, and Signals collaborator, Jane Gull tells us about the journey so far.
Due to public demand, over 100 screenings will have taken place before My Feral Heart leaves our cinemas. This swell of support that prompted OurScreen, the cinema-on-demand website through which all screenings were crowd sourced, to dub it “a runaway train”. The film won hearts and minds from Cornwall to The Shetlands as it smashed all previous OurScreen records to become the ‘people powered cinema’ site’s top performing film of all-time.
What is OurScreen?
