Panic directed by Sean Spencer

The British independent film Panic directed by Sean Spencer and starring David Gyasi, Pippa Nixon, Jason Wong, Yennis Cheung is now available in US on the major streaming and VOD platform.

In the film, music journalist Andrew Deeley played by David Gyasi, lives in a high-rise tower block, cut off from the world, psychologically scarred after a vicious street attack. He spends his evenings watching his neighbors and becomes infatuated with Kem, a beautiful young Chinese woman.

When Amy, a married woman he meets online, witnesses Kem’s kidnapping, Deeley tries and fails to get the police involved. He is left with no choice but to try and find Kem himself, fighting his own anxieties as he strives to find someone whom the world is happy to forget.

Armed with only an Oyster card and a hammer, Deeley spirals into the heart of the Chinese Triad underworld. Hoping for a fresh start with the elusive Amy, Deely puts his life on the line as he fights to save Kem.

Shot on location in East London over three weeks, the film captures the raw, gritty energy of the city, and features a brooding, charismatic performance by the brilliant up-and-coming British actor David Gyasi. After securing key roles in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and the blockbusters Cloud Atlas and Red Tails, Gyasi is soon to be seen in Alex Garland’s sci-fi thriller Annihilation.
