THE ARBOR – UK Quad Poster

THE ARBOR is in my opinion a genuinely groundbreaking film that, while innovative and unsettling in its presentation, also tells a compelling and deeply affecting story. The housing estate where the true story of troubled screenwriter Andrea Dunbar is so tangibly present in Clio Barnard’s brilliant film that it is almost a character itself. Once I had watched the film, it seemed essential that I visit the place. While I was there, wandering the near-deserted streets one dreary Wednesday afternoon, I took some photographs, one of which I used as the backdrop of the poster artwork, and across the whole of the theatrical and home entertainment marketing campaign.
