Spotlight Screening: Pin Cushion
Director: Deborah Heywood
Running Time: 82′
Lyn (Joanna Scanlan) and her daughter Iona (rising star Lily Newmark) arrive in town looking for a fresh start, but as Iona longs for a life beyond the confines of their home, the eccentric fantasy world they’ve built for themselves starts to crumble. Casting a keen eye on the complex relationships between women, this deliciously dark and utterly distinctive British debut infuses its dreamlike, fairytale quality with shards of something much sharper and more troubling.
Followed by an extended panel discussion in partnership with Underwire Festival.
