Synopsis

James Pope is a young man who has spent his entire life in captivity without knowing, having been abducted as an infant. When the authorities find and imprison his kidnappers, James is reunited with his family who do everything they can to support him, but he must readjust to the world as he knows it. What James wants more than anything is to watch the latest Brigsby Bear episode – his beloved childhood TV show – though he transpires the entire production was created solely for him. Determined to finish Brigsby’s story, James gathers a group of new friends to help him make a movie and communicate the importance of the character in his life. ‘Brigsby Bear’ is an uplifting comedy-drama which explores mental health and celebrates creativity through filmmaking.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
