Tuesday, April 13, 2010 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

A New Yorker awakens to find himself in a place called The Village run by a man known as Two. As everyone in The Village is referred to only by a number, everyone in The Village refers to him as Six - despite he himself knowing that he has another name - and seems to know who he is.

He is told he lives in The Village and that The Village is the only reality there is. Six's mission becomes to find out where The Village is, who Two is and why he is seemingly keeping him prisoner in The Village (despite Two stating that Six is a free man), and how he can escape to his life back in New York. Six has to learn who among the Villagers he can trust - who include a doctor named 313, a cab driver named 147, and Two's own son named 11-12 - in his quest to escape from The Village. Six also has recurring memories of his life in New York, including an encounter with a woman named Lucy, which may be part of the key to discovering why he's in The Village

Ahead of UK transmission, this is a chance to see Episode One of ITV's reinvention of the 60s cult classic The Prisoner, written by Bill Gallagher and produced by Trevor Hopkins.

Jim Caviezel plays No6, a man trapped in a mysterious place known only as The Village. In his struggle to escape, he becomes locked in a battle of wits with the sinister controller, No2, played by Ian McKellen.

The BFI are pleased to confirm the panel for the Q&A following this preview: cast members Jim Caviezel (Six/Michael) and Hayley Atwell (4-15/ Lucy), Executive Producer Michele Buck, Director Nick Hurran and Production Designer Michael Pickwoad. Chair: Matthew Sweet (broadcaster and journalist).
