QFT organises a year-round schools programme of educational screenings, designed to support the national curriculum from KS1- AS & A2 level, more details below.
QFT is delighted to be hosting a special schools screening of HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE (12) as part of Into Film’s Spring Screenings programme on Wednesday 22 February 10am - 11:45am.
Aimed at pupils aged 14 years and above, this English language film centres around twelve-year-old Ricky who has never settled into life in the foster care system. After a string of petty misdemeanours, he’s sent to live in a remote location with Bella and her gruff husband Hec. The change of pace and Bella’s frank openness is good for Ricky, especially when she gives him his own pet dog that he names Tupac. However, all is turned upside down when events suddenly force Ricky to flee with Tupac into the bush, with Hec hot on his heels. Despite previously not having much to say to one another, the two find themselves bonding deep in the wilderness as the authorities set up a wide-sweeping manhunt to find them. Includes free downloadable teaching resource.
