UCA alumnus Chris Carr, a writer and director, is celebrating after his spy thriller, The Dry Cleaner, was chosen for the spotlight series of the SPYFLIX Film Festival, with online screenings for one week from 8 August. The film was awarded an honourable mention by the festival’s judging panel, which included Simon Cornwell (producer of BBC hit The Night Manager and son of John Le Carré), and Joe Wisneberg, creator of hit spy show The Americans. The Dry Cleaner is a contemporary spy drama in which a British intelligence officer tries to recruit a Middle Eastern student who has links to a revolutionary group in her home country. Chris, who graduated from UCA in 2006, is a specialist in short films and commercials, and most recently ventured into the world of podcasts, using them to spark and generate stories for his films.
