Kent-based television director and writer, Tim Leandro, and a group of dedicated high-end industry film makers have come together to tell a modern Canterbury tale.

Leandro, whose film making roots are firmly planted in documentary film, was inspired by the micro-community that work, create and live in Canterbury’s famous Goods Shed farmer’s market and restaurant. The 35 minute film concentrates on the personal stories of the individuals whose lives are intertwined in the Goods Shed.

Leandro said; “this film is classic documentary with a twist.  I am very fortunate in that a group of highly talented collaborators worked with me for no fee to make it happen.   It’s a zero budget film and has taken over a year to complete because we had to fit it around our working schedules, but the effort has been well worth it”.

From Soup to Nuts is being premiered at the Gulbenkian Cinema in Canterbury on Saturday 28 January 2012.  It will then tour the festival circuit with a view to being picked up by a broadcaster.

Tim Leandro is a two time BAFTA nominee.  He has sat on BAFTA judging panels and is a member of the Kent TV & Film Board.  Tim was a pioneer of culture and magazine shows in the 1980s graduating to documentary film-making then moving into drama.  This year Tim celebrates 25 years of directing television programmes.
