Q&A with creator and executive producers Dennis Kelly and Felix Barrett, director of ‘Summer’ Marc Munden and actors Jude Law and Katherine Waterson.
A Sky original drama following three separate but interconnected stories: ‘Summer’, ‘Autumn’ and ‘Winter’.
‘Summer’ written by Dennis Kelly and directed by Marc Munden sees Sam (Jude Law), drawn to a mysterious island off the British coast. Isolated from the mainland, Sam is unable to leave the idyllic and dangerously enchanting world he has discovered, where the secretive rituals of its inhabitants prompt him to grapple with experiences of loss and trauma hidden in his past through the distorted lens of the present. As boundaries between fantasy and reality fragment, his quest to unlock the truth leads the islanders to reveal a shocking secret.
It will be available to view for BAFTA members on voting.bafta.org from 16 -21 September.
‘Autumn’ is a theatrical event created by theatrical innovators Punchdrunk and co-directed by founder and artistic director of Punchdrunk Felix Barrett and ‘Summer’ director Marc Munden. Taking place on the 3rd of October and will be broadcast as live on Sky arts and online. It follows the events of a single day in real time, featuring cast including Jude Law and Katherine Waterston.
‘Winter’ written by Kit de Waal, Dean O’Loughlin and Dennis Kelly, directed by Philippa Lowthorpe, sees Helen (Naomie Harris), a headstrong outsider, finding herself inextricably drawn to the island to find answers. As the lines between fantasy and fact are distorted, Helen and her family are caught between the island’s splintered forces, which gives rise to a fractious battle to decide its fate.
Each story can be seen individually but watching all three parts gives viewers the full experience of The Third Day.
