Catstrand is showing Some Other Mother on Wednesday, 19th June...
High up in a Glasgow tower block, ten-year old Star and her mother await the outcome of their claim for asylum. As Mama’s mind fragments under the pressure of their unknown future, Star constructs a poetic and fantastical world of her own.
Programmed at the heart of Refugee Week Scotland, Some Other Mother is a story of loss and survival, which explores the traumatising impact of the asylum system, regardless of the outcome.
“The emotional impact is shattering and beautifully conveyed.” **** Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman.
Produced in association with The Tron, Scottish Refugee Council and supported by Stellar Quines.
