A Greenwich-based filmmaker’s acclaimed and highly controversial political film is being screened across the country in the lead-up to the general election.

Twice BAFTA nominated John Walsh’s political satire ToryBoy the Movie begins by charting his journey from a disillusioned but lifelong Labour supporter to running for parliament in Middlesborough as a Conservative candidate when David Cameron opened the door for new members to stand before the 2010 election.

When it transpires the sitting MP has not held a constituency surgery in 15 years, John sets out to track him down – opening up a can of worms that led to national newspaper headlines and the MP being disciplined by Ed Milliband’s office.

The Guardian described it as ‘documentary of the year’ while BBC Politics called it ‘astonishing and genuinely funny’.

John will be presenting the film, followed by a Q&A, at the Tricycle Cinema in Kilburn from 2pm on April 26 and there will be screenings around the country, including at Colfe’s School on March 10.
