Director Shane Meadows / 2009 / UK

<p><strong>“Like a cross between <em>This Is Spinal Tap</em> and Steve Coogan's sitcom <em>Saxondale</em>.” - <em>Independent</em></strong></p>

<p>A rollicking rock mockumentary from Shane Meadows (<em>This is England,</em> MIFF 07; <em>Somers Town</em>, MIFF 08) takes us behind the Manchester live music scene, as veteran roadie Le Donk (Paddy Considine) teams up with real-life rapper Scor-zay-zee to get a gig as the warm-up act for the Arctic Monkeys. </p>

<p>Made as the first of Warp Films' ‘5 Day Features' - low budget productions created in under five days - <em>Le Donk & Scor-zay-zee </em>is for Meadows a return to his freeform roots; a film humming with the anarchic energy of improvised comedy that occasionally drags the director out from behind the lens to take part in the havoc.</p>
