Matt Smith Makes Directorial Debut for Sky Arts

Matt Smith is to make his directorial debut with the Sky Arts series "Playhouse Presents".  His film is called "Cargese" and is described as "a piece of poetic realism" on adolescent love and loss.  It will air on Sky Arts on 25 April 2013.

Written by Simon Stephens, the film stars Craig Roberts, Joe Cole and Avigail Tlalim as a group of disaffected teenagers in South London.  Filming is due to begin next week and Matt has commented:

“Sky Arts offers creative opportunities that many other channels don’t," Smith said. "To collaborate with Simon Stephens in this capacity was a thrilling and rare opportunity and one we both were keen to embrace.”
