Best British 2018

Bachelor, 38


Angela Clarke



UK, 15 mins

Bryan Bale grew up in Cardiff at a time when homosexual acts between men were still illegal. As a young man in the 1960s he moved to London, enjoying everything the city had to offer, and he met the love of his life. With stories that are funny and intensely moving in equal measure, Bryan reflects on the past, while embracing his present and future.

Bachelor, 38 has been shortlisted for the Best British Award, sponsored by Pinewood Studios.
