‘My Feral Heart’ is an original screenplay written by Duncan Paveling, which blends social realism with an element of fantasy. The film is the debut feature outing for award-winning director Jane Gull, and produced by James Rumsey.
Luke, an independent young man with Down’s syndrome, is forced to live in a care home when his elderly mother dies. He struggles to settle there, frustrated at having his wings clipped by its rules, and unimpressed by his new housemates. Luke’s disappointment with his new home soon turns to wonder when he begins to explore the surrounding countryside. Pete, a troubled youth who tends the garden at the home, catches Luke sneaking out and they strike up an unlikely rapport: Pete covers for Luke and Luke helps Pete in the garden. On one illicit excursion to the adjoining field Luke discovers a young girl in desperate need of help…
Having had significant experience working with people of all ages within the care sector, both Jane and Duncan were keen to break down the perception of disability.
The similarities and experiences that we all share, regardless of needs are at the forefront of ‘My Feral Heart’, a story about ability not disability.
