Sulphur and White was shot at locations including Joss Bay Kingsgate Bay and Botany Bay.
Starring Mark Stanley – of Game of Thrones -, Emily Beecham, Anna Friel, Dougray Scott, and Aftab Shivdasani, the film is inspired by the true story of David Tait (played by Mark Stanley), a city trader and mountaineer, who tries to forget his traumatic childhood as he climbs the corporate ladder in the City Of London.
When he meets Vanessa (Emily Beecham), David’s life begins to change.
The Kent Film Office said locations used were Joss Bay, Kingsgate Bay, Botany Bay, adding: “The production visited Joss Bay in Broadstairs, a proclaimed surfer’s paradise, boasting a 200 metre-long stretch of sandy beach. Kingsgate Bay and Botany Bay afford incredible views of white cliffs and highly photographed white chalk stacks.
These coastal locations have attracted various film and TV productions over the years from French coming-of-age film À nous les petites Anglaises (1976), Mr Selfridge Series 4 (2016), Bhikari (2017) to most recently Dracula (2020).”
