PECKING ORDER (FEATURE FILM)
Writers: Shoshanna McCallum & Natalie Medlock (Stand Up Girl)
Fierce rivalries, club infighting, problematic birds and irregular judging are just some of the challenges faced by a group of zealous British chicken breeders from Bishop Auckland who are hell bent on victory at the National Poultry Show. Three months ahead of the competition, it gets nasty: the best birds are being picked off, poisoned, one by one. It’s a race against time to find the perpetrator, and suspicion abounds.
In Development with Bankside Films. Based on the 2017 documentary feature.
