BLUE AND THE BUGHOUSE

Co Filmmaker - 12 min documentary

The exterior of  the Ace Bingo building is worn and faded and yet still maintains its individuality and charm on the lower high street of Cheltenham town. Players stepping outside occasionally, to smoke, hint at the warmth of life inside. Here we meet Bob and Sheila, lifelong friends and regular players at Ace Bingo. In an environment which creates a cheerless first impression, this short documentary explores and shares the moments and conversations which instil a strong sense of community life, love and friendship. A portrait of two friends, amid a curios world where solitude meets togetherness and monotony works with chance. Listen as Bob and Sheila reflect on childhood memories, moments with their loved ones and share thoughts on things best forgotten.
