The Worm

A re-imagining of the traditional North East folk song ‘The Lambton Worm’.

'The noises began that night after dark, Between the Shipping forecast and the last bedside lights'

'The creature plonked on its hilltop throne, Laid down it’s demands'

Shot on location in Northumberland, the film at it’s heart uses the artists poem ‘The Worm’  to tell the story of a contemporary emergence of a legendary giant worm on a North East Village.   

The film plays on the ambiguity found within traditional folklore storytelling and literature comparing this to the confusing nature of current news and media tropes and the use of metaphor and mythology as a tool to reflect modern changes, fears and concerns, leaving the viewer to decide for themselves what is really going on.
