Description

Carrington is a short docu-drama looking at the life of Rab Carrington during the 1970s.

It all starts with a chance meeting in a pub in North Wales, followed by an incident ridden trip to Argentina and ends in a small terraced house in Sheffield. The film is based on original interview footage, reconstructions and rare archive photographs.
 
While travelling to a weekend’s climbing in the Lake District, filmmaker Tom Kirby read an article by Rab and was intrigued. After a little more research Tom realised there was a story to tell. The first challenge was to approach the man himself. Over a large pot of tea, Tom met with Rab and had an enjoyable discussion. This film is the result of that pot of tea.
