Dan and Michael are meeting up for a date with a difference. Michael has set a challenge to test their first impressions of each other. But Dan is out of his comfort zone; he isn’t used to dates requiring such vulnerability. Set against the backdrop of Central and East London, Blood out of a Stone explores the modern dating scene, gay identity and loneliness. This intimate story of almost connections asks why we sometimes deny ourselves the happy ending we so crave. Q&A with director Ben Allen and producer Alastair Mavor after the screening.
