Winner of the Audience Award at BFI London Film Festival and Hainan International Film Festival, Blue Bag Life follows Lisa, whose life has, since childhood, been devastated by the effects of heroin. The blue ‘baggies’ the drug comes in symbolise the destruction of the relationship between her addict mother and partner. When her mother dies and her partner’s relapse leads to his incarceration, Lisa embarks on a cinematic pilgrimage of self-discovery and salvation. Through it, she becomes determined that the indelible mark addiction has left upon her will be transformed into something positive in this raw yet deeply moving journey through the world of addiction.

Followed by a Q&A with co-director Lisa Selby and others TBC.
