Talkies Community Cinema: Above the Clouds

Saturday 21 October 2023 7.30pm - 10.00pm

Waterhouse Hall, 77 Compton Road, Winchmore Hill, N21 3NU

Introduced and Q&A from (local) writer Simon Lord and Director Leon Chambers. 


On her 18th birthday, headstrong and artistic Charlie makes a startling discovery. The man married to her mother, isn’t her dad. Recruiting Oz, a rough sleeper whose only possession is his driving licence, she embarks on an epic road trip from Margate to the Isle of Skye to track down her biological father. On the journey they both learn more than they bargained for – about themselves, each other, the importance of family, and why (sometimes) there really is no place like home.


“Director and producer Leon Chambers has a great eye for capturing the beauty and magnitude of UK. As an American, if there was ever a film to make you want to book a plane ticket to the UK, Above the Clouds would be the one to do it.”

— Carl Broughton – (FilmEra)

“Above the Clouds is the film that will define the 2018 Raindance Film Festival in the minds of millions of cinema lovers.”

— Bennett McClellan (Raindance Review)

“Above the Clouds already feels like the gem of this year’s festival, and there’s always one, full of heart and soul and characters you can truly care about.”
