Andrea Arnold

Andrea's films are honest and extremely true to life about the bleak conditions that individuals have to endure in council estates across the UK. Her Breakout short film Wasp starring Nathalie Press and Danny Dyer won her a string of awards and led her to direct the slightly experimental Red Road, which is the beginning of a trilogy of films set in Scotland using the same characters but presumably telling each of the supporting characters tales in the additional films each directed by a first time director for the Advance Party project. Fish Tank her second feature film again has gained critical acclaim for Arnold about a girl again not living in the best of conditions but sees a way out with her form of escapism being urban dance.
