Hoard

Today – Thu 23 May

Why watch?

Complex psychologies like hoarding are almost impossible to fathom from the outside yet completely logical when you're inside it. Hoard is a beautiful gift of a film because it helps bridge some of that chasm of misunderstanding, helping some to be better understood and others to better understand.

14 May 2024 programme

British writer-director Luna Carmoon draws on her own life for this visceral psychological drama that won her the Sutherland Award for Best First Feature at BFI London Film Festival 2023.
Drama • Gritty • Intimate

Seven-year-old Maria’s (Lily-Beau Leach) South East London childhood with her mother (Hayley Squires), an obsessive hoarder, feels sparkling and magical until tragedy separates them and Maria is thrown into a more conventional world. Years later, now-teenage Maria (Saura Lightfoot Leon) seeks to reconnect with her mother the only way she knows how – bin-dipping for discarded treasures and collecting black bags full of festering garbage.

When she meets Michael (Joseph Quinn), another troubled teen, they develop an intense and animalistic bond.

Carmoon’s audacious, bracingly unusual feature debut announces her as a talent to watch. Powered by committed performances from its terrific cast (especially mesmerising newcomer Leon), it tells a fierce, uncompromising and emotional story about a young woman’s burgeoning sexuality and her uneasy reckoning with grief and childhood trauma.
