Shooting will commence on ‘Christopher And His Kind’ on Sunday, May 16th in Belfast. The 90-minute film for BBC Two will star ‘Doctor Who’s Matt Smith as writer Christopher Isherwood and will examine the determining years of the latter’s life, based on his 1976 memoir of the same name.

The drama will shoot on location in Belfast until Tuesday, June 8th with the assistance of the Northern Ireland Screen Fund supported by Invest NI and part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

Isherwood’s formative years see him escape repressive English society and a suffocating relationship with his mother, played by Lindsay Duncan (Under the Tuscan Sun) for the decadent – if politically unstable – world of 1930’s Berlin.

The drama is written by acclaimed playwright Kevin Elyot (My Night With Reg), directed by Geoffrey Sax (Tipping The Velvet) and produced by Celia Duval (Margot) for Mammoth Screen, with Michele Buck (The Prisoner), Kevin Elyot (My Night with Reg) and Damien Timmer (Touching Evil) as executive producers and Eleanor Moran (Rome) as BBC executive producer, through Piers Wenger, Head of Drama for BBC Wales.

Kieran McGuigan (Killing Bono) is the director of photography, the films’ release date is TBC.
