Description

The Closer We Get

"A heartbreaking reminder that there is no such thing as an ordinary life”

Alison Rowat, The Herald

Join director Karen Guthrie for a captivating Q & A and Blackpool’s premiere of ’The Closer We Get’, her multi award-winning, BBC-broadcast documentary which has screened in 17 countries.

The film is an autobiographical story of loyalty, broken dreams and redemption spanning 50 years of family life. Karen’s mother Ann suffers a devastating stroke that draws her daughter home to Scotland to help care for her. But Karen isn’t the only one who returns: her prodigal father Ian also reappears. Karen seizes this last chance to come to terms with the aftermath of a secret her father had tried - and failed - to keep, and finds Ann’s stroke has thrown them all a life raft.
