Noel Gallagher to feature in movie Later this year
The world premiere of Kevin Sampson’s new film Powder will take place in Liverpool as part of the Sound City festival.
The film, written by Liverpool author Kevin, was shot in Merseyside – at Alma de Cuba, Korova and Knowsley Hall – and at music festivals in Ibiza and the UK.
It stars Liam Boyle, who also appeared in Sampson’s first film Awaydays and Keith Allen’s son Alfie Allen.
Liam said: “We’re really looking forward to having the premiere in Liverpool. After filming so much of it here it made sense to have it here.
“I haven’t seen the final film yet – the first edit was more than three hours long, then I saw the two and a half hour cut, but the final film is just 100 minutes. I can’t wait to see it.”
The film centres around the music industry – and in particular the fictional band The Grams.
It was filmed at the V Festival, alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry.
The Grams – and their fictional rivals – were allowed to play on stage in between the main acts, with the crew planting their own flags and T-shirts among the crowds.
The security team even let the Powder cameras in their helicopter to get impressive overhead shots of the band playing. Real-life musicians were keen to help out too. The film features cameos from the Ting Tings, Lily Allen, The Script, The Wombats, Noel Gallagher, Johnny Marr and Brandon Flowers.
Powder will be screening for one night only at FACT, Seel Street, on Thursday May 19 before the film goes on general release in the autumn.
Places are limited, with a first-come first served free allocation for Liverpool Sound City delegate pass holders and a small number of tickets on sale to the general public, available from the FACT website, www.fact.co.uk.
