Award-winning, deeply moving documentary RED HERRING – in select cinemas and on demand 3 May

Buzz, Film

When Kit Vincent, a young filmmaker, receives a terminal diagnosis aged 24, his first instinct is to turn on his camera and document those closest to him.

Kit’s divorced parents are naturally having a hard time grappling with the reality of their son’s illness, and his father, Lawrence, begins a transition of his own-a conversion to Judaism. Following along with his father’s process of grieving for his son’s upended future, Red Herring captures the absurdity of the things we do to find solace in times of inexplicable tragedy. In this personal and touching documentary about a life cut short, Vincent walks the line between humour and grief to helm this love letter to the relationships that keep us going through the dark stages of life.

Directed by Kit Vincent, produced by Edward Owles and with an original soundtrack by Xav Clarke, Red Herring had its UK Premiere at Sheffield Doc Fest, before going on to screen at Raindance Film Festival 2023 where it won the ‘Best UK Feature’ Award and the British Independent Film Awards where it was nominated for the ‘Raindance Maverick Award’.
