Listed by View details

'Tergiversation' is a political comedy/thriller that draws from films such as '12 Angry Men' and shows like 'Mad Men' and 'The Thick of It'. The film follows four political opposites as they battle it out over a piece of legislation that's soon to be debated in the house. The project is darkly comedic, and aims to observe a politician's day-to-day life on the job and the bureaucracy they deal with.

This is casting for the rough version of the film, which we will then use to pitch to the BFI in the hopes of securing more funding in order to shoot on celluloid and submit this to festivals.
