Death of a Gentleman

Produced and directed by Sam Collins, Jarrod Kimber, Christopher Hird and Johnny Blank; Death of a Gentleman follows Collins and Australian counterpart Kimber on a quest to save their beloved Test cricket. But what begins as an exploration based around the question ‘Who really cares about Test cricket?’ in the 21st Century becomes a chilling expose of the motivations of those in charge of the sport at the highest levels.

Reviews for Death of a Gentleman have all been very positive, with ESPN Cricinfo summarising the feature length documentary as follows:

“Death of a Gentleman exposes how neo-liberal economics threatens the game, while also hinting at worse lying beneath the surface, leaving you feeling disillusioned and angry”

A must see for cricket fans everywhere, a full list of screenings can be found on the Death of a Gentleman website, or Our Screen – which offers a sort of crowd sourcing for film screenings (i.e. if enough people buy a ticket for a proposed screening, Dartmouth Films will show it!)
