In 1985, a fissure formed at England’s centre and split the north from the south. A giant tear through the landscape, a real gap, descending into an abyss of bottomless depth. And in the north, cut off, things began to stir. Beneath the moors and by the rivers, in the valleys and by the sea.

The North! The North! is a dark, contemporary myth about England featuring highly physical storytelling and animation.

It begins with a phone call and some shocking news. After some shocking news, a young man embarks on an extraordinary, surreal journey from the lights of the city to the dark and bloody heart of the north. There monsters lurk and a reckoning awaits.

A tale about the bad things that happen to us, and the stories we make up in response.

 

Written, performed, and with animation by Christopher Harrisson
