The Fence

A feature adaptation of the hugely popular short film of the same name released on YouTube in 2018. The Fence is set and made in the city of Bristol, and is based on real life accounts from people who grew up on south Bristol council estates in the 70’s and 80’s.

The story follows an 18-year-old working class lad who has his motorcycle stolen the day he buys it. He seeks the help of his scoundrel friends and notorious older brother to track it down…before it is gone forever.

There is a strong moral theme examining the culture of the period, peer pressures and difficult individual choices. Ultimately offering a fun film with heart, that combines nostalgia, strong characters, comedy, and a fast-paced narrative. Not to mention a terrific soundtrack of 80s music from the likes of Madness, The Selector along with Adam and the Ants. Writer and director William Stone takes us on a joyride briming with nostalgia and self-discovery.
