The film follows the journey of a determined, working class woman, Clarice Cliff, as she breaks the glass ceiling and revolutionises the workplace in the 20th century.
Clarice Cliff (Dynevor) is a vivacious young factory worker in the industrial British midlands of the 1920s. Bursting at the seams with ideas for colours and shapes, Clarice takes more and more dangerous risks - but she manages to stay one step ahead of the workhouse and impress the eccentric factory owner Colley Shorter (Goode) on the way with her talent and innovation.
Claire Peate is a novelist and BAFTA Rocliffe winning scriptwriter. Originally from the Midlands, she’s excited to be relocating to Cornwall next year.
Claire will be interviewed by former BBC Radio Cornwall Presenter & Producer and writer Tim Hubbard.
In this fascinating talk, you’ll hear about Clarice’s struggles and scandals, and how the film came to be made in the middle of a pandemic.
There’s even a chance to discover what Clarice Cliff smelt like!
