Groucho Arts start post-production of new crime thriller Tales of Babylon. First Look images released

We’ve been sent a trio of first look images for new indie British crime thriller Tales of Babylon and are currently in post-production.

The film marks the second feature length by Pelayo De Lario (Jack). His latest stars Clive Russell, Billie Gadsdon, Aaron Cobham, Paul Cassidy, Maria Crittell and Ray Calleja.

Tales Of Babylon follows two siblings looking to escape their abusive mobster grandfather, who join forces with a pair of hitmen with a knack for the theatrical in their search for a new life in this tale of crime, violence, and redemption. Crime, money and violence in London are at the centre of this tale of modern Babylon.

The film was shot around the London Docklands, Brixton, Greenwich, Hammersmith and Hoxton.

Talking about the film, Film Director Pelayo De Lario said, “Tales of Babylon is a compilation of stories from the points of view of different criminals in London, modern day Babylon. I wrote Tales of Babylon as a type of love letter to this city, a story compiling all the stories and characters that make this city unique, that make a melting pot of different cultures and stories, a city with a thousand different tales and just as many ways of telling them. I wanted to show a different side of the city I love so much, a side that felt more real to my experiences growing up here. Tales of Babylon intends to take a deeper look at what really makes London the way it is.
I also intend Tales of Babylon to be a new kind of movie, a movie created by a new type of filmmaker, one that caters to the wants and desires of a new generation of viewers who see the world and entertainment in a whole different way, who interpret films and tv with a different lens a different way of understating pacing and rhythm. A generation who needs constant gratification and seeks it everywhere they go”.
There is no word on exactly when Tales Of Babylon will be released. Groucho Arts hope to take the film on the film festival network before release.
