Flood

A year-long epic told in four parts across a year, 2017 saw the story of the Flood, made by Slung Low for Hull City of Culture 2017; online, live in Hull and on BBC Television.

Premise: One day it starts to rain and no-one knows why. And it doesn’t stop.

Far out on the North Sea a fisherman raises a woman in his net, miraculously alive from the deep sea. Is she one of the migrants now washing up on English shores? Or someone sent for some higher purpose?

Flood follows the story of this woman, Gloriana, alongside a group of survivors from The City By The Sea.
