‘I told you it’d happen. In this town. It’d come to fruition. It’s like rivers of blood with Scousers’

Skelmersdale, Lancashire. Haunted by memories of his closest friend Emlyn, Paul returns to the ashes of his childhood home in a Liverpool overspill estate and implores his mother to leave it all behind. Envisaged by the government as "social utopias" in the 1960s, towns like Skelmersdale promised visionary housing and opportunities for thousands of Liverpudlians uprooted from their overcrowded city.

Traversing a 30-year friendship, Years of Sunlight is a haunting cry for those left feeling shipwrecked from their old communities and abandoned by the post-industrial political system.
