A heart-breaking masterpiece made in Cornwall.


Long Way Back, the third feature film to be written and directed by Falmouth University Associate Lecturer Brett Harvey and produced by Associate Lecturer Simon Harvey for Cornish production company o-region, is to be released in cinemas in September 2022.

The project was developed and produced with support from Falmouth University’s Sound/Image Cinema Lab, involved over 20 students, and was mixed by Falmouth University lecturer Richard Butler in the School of Film & Television dubbing theatre.

The film – a road movie - was shot in Cornwall over 18 days in the summer of 2019, pre-pandemic, and had its premiere at Manchester International Film Festival in 2022.

The film stars Tristan Sturrock (Poldark, The Crown, BAIT) and Chloe Endean (BAIT) and has been described as “a heart-breaking masterpiece made in Cornwall.”

This is the third feature film coproduction where o-region has worked with Falmouth University staff and students, following Weekend Retreat, released in 2011, and Brown Willy, released in 2016.

Long Way Back premieres in the South West on 2 September, before moving to venues across major cities through the autumn. The production has committed 20% of proceeds to the charities Parkinson’s UK and Cornwall Mind.
