Tommy Stories (Tommy can you hear me?)

A short documentary exploring the memories of local people involved with the filming of Tommy (1975) by Ken Russell who shot the film in and around the Portsmouth area. Includes archive film of the pier on fire, a consequence of the film crew shooting there during the production. The film was commissioned by Portsmouth Film Festival to be screened in the Kings Theatre, Portsmouth alongside Tommy (1975) where the main pinball scene was filmed. Ken Russell attended this screening and an important moment in local film history.
