Ben is having boyfriend troubles again, so his grandma introduces him to Albert, an eccentric painter who doubles as an unconventional, Jung-inspired psychotherapist.  But their therapy sessions end up revealing as much about Albert as they do about Ben in this twisted, sexual comedy.
Filmed on location in Glasgow, Seat in Shadow is the debut feature from writer/ director Henry Coombes and stars local Artist & former BBC Broadcaster, David Sillars. The film received its world premiere at Edinburgh International Film Festival and also played Berlin International Film Festival and BFI Flare.  This is a witty study of social mores and sexual excess where the boundaries between doctor and patient, artist and muse become increasingly blurred.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Henry Coombes and actors Jonathan Leslie and David Sillars.
