Leigh Film Factory will be hosting a special screening of the multi-award-winning Manchester film Nobody Loves You and You Don’t Deserve to Exist this March.

Loosely based on Hieronymus Bosch’s 15th century medieval painting, The Garden of Earthly Delights, the semi-autobiographical story follows Old Jack, a grieving ex-English teacher struggling on welfare benefits, exploring what life was like in Manchester under three Conservative Prime Ministers: Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s, John Major in the 1990s and Boris Johnson in the 2020s.

The film’s writer/director Brett Gregory has joined with Manchester’s oldest homeless charity, Lifeshare, and Wigan’s suicide prevention charity, EPiC HOPE, to host a free public screening at Leigh Film Factory on Thu 23 Mar.

An hour-long Q&A with members of the film’s cast and crew will also be available to the audience following the screening.

Since May 2022 the film has won over 55 international film awards and nominations including Best Feature Film (Ponza Film Awards / Italy 2022), Best Director (Madrid International Film Festival / Spain 2022), Best Soundtrack (Eastern Europe Film Festival / Romania 2022), Best Actor (Stockholm City Film Festival / Sweden 2022), Best Supporting Actor (Arrow International Film Festival / France 2022), Best Supporting Actress (Indo Malay Film Festival / Malaysia 2022), Best Film Poster (Athens Art Film Festival / Greece 2022).
