The screening will take place on the evening of Thursday 23rd at the Grassmarket Community Centre in Edinburgh. Tickets to the screening cost £5 will also include a free drinks reception after the show where And Violet filmmaker Paul Gray will give a brief talk about the film – a coming of age drama about the interwoven and unravelling lives of teenage daughter Violet, her adoptive Mum and her birth Mum.

When Violet and her adoptive mum Cathy visit a small Scottish town one summer, they unexpectedly run into Violet's estranged birth-mum Zoe. The mothers clash and Violet struggles to navigate this complicated relationship. Cathy struggles to help her, as she becomes increasingly confused and angry.

The meeting also triggers something in Zoe, and she decides to change the direction of her life, returning to Edinburgh. It is the city where Violet lives, but it is also a city that holds dark memories of a difficult past.

Violet and Zoe connect again and begin an illicit online communication, but Cathy finds out and ends all contact. Violet rebels against her and as Zoe self-destructively spirals out of control, Cathy has to urgently try to find a way back in to Violet's life.

AND VIOLET is a double winner at Arizona International Film Festival 2017, winning Best Dramatic Feature as well as a Special Jury Award for Best Performance for Hana MacKenzie. Watch the trailer here
