by Kevin Haldon

In our latest video covering this years Romford Film Festival, Kev sits down to talk to Helen Alexis Yonov director of The Gesture and the Word.

A lonely postman (Gilbert) secretly recreates postcards for a woman (Aurore) on his postal route when her boyfriend’s homemade postcards stop arriving from his travels around the world. With the help of his friend Mr. Rostalle, (Paul Dooley) a blind widower and retired literary professor/poet, Gilbert (James Michael Tyler) learns to open himself up to the prospect of love, and in the process of trying to bring someone else happiness, discovers it for himself.

The Gesture and the Word screens as part of the Romford Film Festival, which takes place June 24th – 28th 2021. For more information check out https://www.romfordfilmfestival.com/
