Producer/presenter Emma-Rosa Dias has an in depth discussion about Quadrophenia with super fan, Kieran McAleer and author, Simon Wells. Talking about the Music, the inspiration for Jimmy's character and one or two things you might not know about the film!
This is an Afro-Mic Production from Emma-Rosa who is putting together a series of documentaries relating to the mod scene and has already given us the unmissable Glasgow and N Ireland Mod Weekender films.
What's immediately clear from this and previous Afro-Mic Productions is that Emma has carefully researched the subject beforehand and also has a genuine interest in what her interviewees have to say. This gives them the confidence to talk openly about the subject.
Kieran and Simon talk about their favourite moments from the film and it's well documented mistakes but also, more interestingly, the often overlooked background theme of a teenager struggling to work through their social dilemmas and suffering from mental illness.

Simon Wells book "Quadrophenia - A Way of Life" will be released in May 2014
