UK Premiere on International Women's Day.

GFF favourite Carol Morley returns with a wonderfully imaginative insight into the life of Audrey Amiss, an artist only properly recognised after her death. Anchored by another terrific performance from the brilliant Monica Dolan, the film follows Audrey and her mental health carer Sandra (Kelly Macdonald) on a road trip to Sunderland. Revisiting key places from her life, it becomes a funny, poignant journey of sweet liberation, feisty confrontation and a reckoning with the past. Illustrated with Audrey’s artwork and set to a wide-ranging soundtrack that includes Boy George and Blondie.

The screening on Wednesday 8 March will be followed by a Q&A with Carol Morley and Monica Dolan, hosted by Allan Hunter. Unfortunately Kelly Macdonald is no longer able to attend the premiere due to illness.
