Rotherham Hospital stars in film: VIDEO
FILM fans tapping into a dose of gritty drama later this year will be able to play a game of spotting local landmarks — including the wards of Rotherham Hospital.
Director Jon Rosling has filmed in several locations around Rotherham and other parts of South Yorkshire.
It is Jon’s attempt to portray the difficulties of growing up in a time of unemployment and social struggles in 21st century England.
The former teacher said: “The film has been shooting on location across Rotherham, Sheffield and Barnsley taking in cultured sites such as Sheffield Manor Lodge and the more down to earth locations of Woodlaithes Village and Fir Vale.
“Rotherham Hospital have been particularly helpful in clearing part of their site for us to film in.
“This is a film that aims to say something about what is happening in England at the moment, particularly about what it is to be working class.”
Jon took him out from a shoot in Rotherham town centre to talk to the Advertiser about the film, its characters, and why he chose his hometown as the backdrop.
