One Time in Winter

Four schoolboys skip the last day of winter term to go and meet their recently expelled friend, who leads them astray on a reckless day out. With shell suits, ciders, cigarettes and pellet guns, the lads gallivant the miserable Northern countryside causing havoc. However, when they stumble across a derelict and remote barn, away from their town and adult eyes, they’re taught the harsh consequences of reluctantly following and protagonist Ethan finds himself in conflict with his own morality.

“One Time In Winter” ultimately explores both the more comical and darker aspects of youths hierarchies in an offbeat, gritty and surrealist fashion.

Featuring a street-cast of non-actors and improvisation, One Time in Winter is a film that will stick with you.

Director Biography - Brody Salmon

Broden Salmon (Writer and Director) is an eighteen year old aspiring filmmaker from Clitheroe currently studying at Manchester Metropolitan University. Influenced by the works of Ken Loach and Shane Meadows, Salmon’s gritty depictions of Northern working class youth combined with more obscure and surrealist aspects reminiscent of Stanley Kubrick create topsy turvy, yet dramatic and performances.
