Father Earth

2 July 2021

Graham Fellows

Main House



Father Earth is the true story of one man’s attempt to save the planet, by converting a derelict church on a windswept island in Orkney into an eco friendly recording studio, and driving a G Wiz electric car there all the way from London. 

That’s the plan, but Life and Relationships – specifically between fathers and sons – soon get in the way, appearing more important than the future of the planet.

Featuring Graham Fellows (as himself and his comic alter ego John Shuttleworth) with a guest appearance by Kids’ TV legends Sooty and Sweep, the real star of Father Earth is perhaps Graham’s eccentric and scientifically driven father Derek. This 83 minute documentary will be screened for the first time ever before a socially distanced audience at Leicester’s Little Theatre on Friday July 2nd at 7.30 pm. This unique preview screening will be followed by a Q&A with Graham Fellows.

Father Earth was filmed mainly in the Orkney Isles over a 10 year period and is Fellows’ first movie project since Southern Softies in 2008. This was the sequel to ‘It’s Nice Up North’ (2005) a collaboration with renowned photographer Martin Parr and described by the Telegraph as ‘A bit of a shambles, frankly, and utterly inspired’. Both films were distributed by Picture House and screened on Sky Arts TV.
