Solti Buttering (Liam Hourican) is on a road trip to scatter his grandfathers' ashes in the Wild West (of Wales). Finding everywhere closed, he stumbles across La Cha Cha, a holiday park with a community of retired characters, living off grid and having the time of their lives. He soon discovers that feisty owner Libby Rees (Ruby Ashbourne Serkis) and her brother Damien (Sonny Ashbourne Serkis) are struggling to keep the place, and community, going.
But they have a very unusual plan... La Cha Cha is a counterculture, romantic comedy about community, love and not going gentle into that good night. Set on the Gower Peninsula, La Cha Cha is the ultimate feel-good film of 2021, at a time when everybody needs more music, laughter and connection in their lives.
Following the closure of his Mobile Film School, Kevin Allen (Twin Town, Under Milk Wood, Benidorm), wrote La Cha Cha during the lockdown and filmed over the summer in the Gower, Wales. Shot on Iphones, training many of the novice crew from scratch, the film uses the nooks and crannies of the 23 acre location as inspiration.
Bringing back together the entire cast of the Bafta Cymru winning cult classic Twin Town for this 'companion piece', adding a few young rising stars and some legendary Welsh cameos, the film weaves real musical performances through a number of scenes, combined with the original soundtrack by Mark Thomas and, of course, a few Cha Cha Cha's.
Written and Directed by Kevin Allen, La Cha Cha, released on DVD 13th December 2021 from Cadiz Entertainment, stars Ruby Ashbourne Serkis, Liam Hourican, Sonny Ashbourne Serkis, Alfie Allen, Keith Allen, Boyd Clack, Rhys Ifans, Tamzin Malleson, Dougray Scott & Melanie Walters.
