Georgia Oakley’s BAFTA nominated film ‘Blue Jean’ featuring a score by Chris Roe will premiere in US cinemas Friday 9th June.
‘Thatcher’s government have just passed a law that stereotypes lesbians and gays as paedophiles, recruiting children for their ‘deviant’ lifestyles. Female PE teachers are prime targets for homophobic accusations, and as a result, Jean is forced to lead a double life. During the week she’s a respected member of staff; on the weekend she slips surreptitiously into Newcastle’s gay scene with her girlfriend Viv. But when she’s confronted by one of her students in a lesbian bar, Jean is pushed to extreme lengths to save her job and her sanity.’
Chris’ soundtrack to ‘Blue Jean’ is available to listen to here.
