And Violet Screening - Glasgow

Tuesday 21st November
Following on from the successful premier in Edinburgh earlier this year, and as part of #AdoptionWeekScottland, Glasgow Council will be screening the award winning feature film ‘And Violet’.

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.

When Violet and her adoptive mum Cathy visit a small Scottish town one summer, they are 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.

This screening will take place on the evening of Tuesday 21st November at Glasgow City Chambers. There will be the chance to share in some refreshments and talk to members of the Scottish Borders Council Adoption Team about themes and issues relating to adoption.
