East London-based filmmaker Santiago Posada travels to Sri Lanka, and unearths a story with unusual resonance as a seventy year-old busker makes a final journey home. Hearing that his brother is dying, Vijay decides to face up to his past and confront his family, with whom he has had no contact for twenty-five years due to his alcoholism and death of his mother. Taking stylistic direction from its subject’s personality, the result is a moving, dignified portrait of belonging and troubled pasts.

Railway Redemption screens as part of the EEFF’s Documentary Afternoon on Sunday 30 June.

£10.00 Tickets will be available from the Rio Cinema website here.
