UK Premiere

Teenager Char is convinced there is something wrong with her mother. Ever since Angela returned home following an inexplicable absence, her daughter has observed subtle changes in her posture, personality and appetite. While she welcomed the changes at first, the differences soon become worrying as Char’s scrutiny quickly turns to horrified dread. Before long, suppressed secrets and family lies are brought to the surface, along with multiple finely-tuned scares. Rooted in eerie Irish folk horror, this quirky doppelganger mystery unsettles with character-driven chills as writer/director Kate Dolan’s contemporary fable reaches its incendiary climax.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Kate Dolan.
