The Last Bookshop

By

19th Apr, 2013

This short film imagines life in the future without independent shops and tells the story of a young schoolboy who stumbles upon the last remaining bookshop. Directors Richard Dadd and Dan Fryer are the duo behind the creative studio, The Bakery:

We love bookshops. But we saw that many are going through tough times.

We wanted to contribute to the cultural debate with our own celebration in support of these glorious independents and their shelves of treasures. So with the help of some remarkable independent bookshops, and a lot of talented friends, we have been able to make our idea for The Last Bookshop into a reality.
