A film created by Bournemouth University has been selected for exhibition at this year’s Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF).

Rufus Stone, Directed by Josh Appignanesi and Executively Produced by Bournemouth University’s Dr Kip Jones, depicts ageing and gay life in rural South West England.

The film was created by a research team led by Dr Jones from the Centre for Qualitative Research and Reader at the School of Health & Social Care and the Media School. The research informed the script of the film and presents the findings in a unique and innovative way.

The Rhode Island International Film Festival highlights international filmmakers and their work and runs from 7 August - 12 August 2012.

The hard-hitting story of sexual awakening, prejudice and treachery in deep rural England will be shown at 4pm on Saturday 11 August.

“Our hope is that the film will dispel many of the myths surrounding ageing, being gay and life in British rural settings,” said Dr Jones.
