The Arbor

11 Feb 2015

Winner of a host of awards, Clio Barnard's extraordinary debut feature is a brilliant blend of narrative and documentary filmmaking. She beautifully retraces the fascinating true story of troubled 1980s playwright Andrea Dunbar (writer of The Arbor and Rita, Sue and Bob Too!) and her tumultuous relationship with her daughter using actors and lip-synched interviews and real life testimonies to form a distinctive, hugely compelling film.

Post-screening discussion with Clio Barnard.
