The Flood gives us Lena Headey (Fighting With My Family), as Wendy, a hardened immigration officer who’s offered a high-profile asylum case, judged on her ability to quickly and clinically reject applicants. Through her interrogation, she must uncover whether Haile (Ivanno Jeremiah) is lying and has a more sinister reason for seeking asylum.
We follow Haile on his perilous 5000 KM journey over oceans, across borders, and amidst the flurry of the Calais Jungle to find solace and safety in the UK. But now he must cross the final hurdle. Based on multiple true stories, The Flood is a thoughtful and timely reflection on the humanity within the refugee crisis.
This looks like a pretty interesting movie, so I’ll definitely check this out.
Directed by Anthony Woodley, with a screenplay from Helen Kingston, the film also stars Iain Glen (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter), Arsher Ali (Line of Duty Series 3), Rebecca Johnson (The Trip) and Mandip Gill (Doctor Who).
The Flood is in UK cinemas and on demand from June 21st.
