UK, 2018, 81mins, Cert.PG
Plus director Q&A

Film description

Iain was just three years old when his mother Irene died. His dad never spoke about it, and the family silence around his mother meant that she was alive only in Iain’s imagination. Later in life, the birth of his own child inspires a journey to discover the truth about Irene, piecing together fragments of the past to make sense of the present. Using animation mixed with filmed footage, Irene’s Ghost follows a son’s search to find out about the mother he never knew. 

Following the film we will be joined by Director Iain Cunningham and Teresa Stewart of Action on Postpartum Psychosis for a live audience Q&A.
