Behind The Scenes
THE STORY OF FALKLAND SQUARE
Falkland Square is based on a true story of Russell Meyers (Great Brittish Entertainment) father. The story was originally pitched in early 2017 to Lexicon co-founder Myles Petford; who shortly adapted it into a screenplay.
The story is one of hope, courage and an unlikely sense of community and friendship when all else seems lost. We are looking to create a strong feeling of empathy among the audience by tackling very sensitive real-life issues. Dave is suffering from PTSD and as a result, he gets terrifying flashbacks daily. We are going to bring to light just how real and difficult mental health struggles are. One in four people in the U.K. will suffer from some form of mental health issue in their life and we aim to make it clear just how challenging things can become without access to treatment or support.
