In the style of Sankofa Film Collective, director Maureen Blackwood sketches the Abrew family tree. A unique showbiz family whose story begins in Scotland at the end of the 19th century. Using archive material, footage of family members and intimate interviews, A Family Called Abrew shows that Black people have always been in Scotland, subject to erasure and invisibility.
