After the birth of his own child, director Iain Cunningham is inspired to find out the truth about the mother he never knew. Irene died when Iain was only three, and his family’s silence meant that she was alive only in his imagination. Exploring the impact of maternal mental health issues and stigma in a close-knit community, this poignant documentary merges filmed and animated sequences as it movingly rebuilds a lost life. 

Winner of Best Feature Documentary at the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 2019.

Followed by a Q&A with director Iain Cunningham, Catharine Carver (Action on Postpartum Psychosis) and Clare Thompson (Maternal Mental Health Alliance).
