David Knight - 2nd Mar 2009

Doves' return to action is backed by an evocative north of England road movie by the highly regarded young filmmaker China Moo-Young, where the reasons for a young man's journey across the bleak, beautiful Pennines in a pristine 1978 Ford Granada only becomes clear when he reaches Blackpool.

It's China's second video since she signed to Warp Films for music videos - her first was another impressive northern tale for Keith's Lullaby.

China's 2007 short film Juvenile gained official selection at Edinburgh, Sundance and Berlin film festivals, and last year she directed Emo, a one-off drama for C4's Coming Up New Talent scheme. She was also named a 'star of tomorrow' in Screen International's annual review of British filmmaking talent.
