‘The Rule Breaker’

Local cinematographer David Doré, has been called upon to film a feature length drama written, produced & directed by Revd. Mandy Carr of Lamberhurst.  The film crew and many members of the cast are Pembury people and all earnings from the film will be donated to the Hospice in the Weald.

The premiere will be at the KINO Cinema in Hawkhurst in early December and it is hoped that the film will be entered into the Berlin International Film Festival next February.

Top Prosecutor, Matthias, is called in to conduct the case against Jesus of Nazareth who is accused of being a subversive element in society by challenging the Establishment and the cultural and religious rules. In an unusual move, Prosecuting and Defence Counsels agree to visit the witnesses together. From the testimony they hear they will build their case; is this Jesus a man of God or a dangerous law-breaker who needs to be punished? The Rule Breaker explores the evidence and draws the case to its conclusion, but in this story the end is just the beginning……….

Some of the nice things people have said about PERFIDITAS

“Sassy, intriguing, page-turning… Roma Nova is a fascinating world.
Simon Scarrow, author of the Eagle (Macro and Cato) series

Powerful storytelling, vivid characters and a page-turning plot makes Alison Morton’s PERFIDITAS a must read.”
Jean Fullerton, author of the East London series

The plot is complex and clever; the scenes and characterisation so vividly described that I almost felt I was watching a movie in my mind at times.
Sue Cook, writer and broadcaster

So what’s it about?
Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces is in trouble – one colleague has tried to kill her and another has set a trap to incriminate her in a conspiracy to topple the government of Roma Nova. Founded sixteen hundred years ago by Roman dissidents and ruled by women, Roma Nova barely survived a devastating coup d’état thirty years ago. Carina swears to prevent a repeat and not merely for love of country.

Seeking help from a not quite legal old friend could wreck her marriage to the enigmatic Conrad. Once proscribed and operating illegally, she risks being terminated by both security services and conspirators. As she struggles to overcome the desperate odds and save her beloved Roma Nova and her own life, she faces the ultimate betrayal…
