A film by Sian Astor-Lewis
Two self-destructive teenage friends embark on an alcohol-fuelled trip around a lonely corner of London. Spiralling out of control, they must confront unspoken trauma and love or lose each other forever.
To Nowhere is the debut feature from UK writer-director Sian Astor-Lewis. Raw, intimate and full of passion, the film blends an emotionally-charged realism with a strikingly original injection of arthouse.
Taking us deep into the emotional journey of two adolescents on the edge, To Nowhere explores vital questions of gender identity, sexuality and abuse. As their journey reaches its climax, this evolves into a dreamlike finale, with a hint of the surreal.

“At its core, it is a no-holds-barred exploration of trauma and abuse in relationships. While this is tough to watch at times, it succeeds where so many other films fail in handling the subject matter with nuance and realism.”
