Cineformation: Q&A with Better Things Producer Samm Haillay
8pm Wednesday 11th February 2009, Waterside 3, Watershed Media Centre
Producer Samm Haillay will be joining Cineformation for a special event Q&A after the screening of his feature film Better Things.
There will be a chance to discuss his extraordinary feature debut, looking beyond the “green and pleasant” to uncover the boredom, loneliness and drug abuse lurking within these isolated rural communities. With a poetic, compassionate realism recalling Lynne Ramsay, the multi-stranded narrative offers glimpses into the emotional lives of its characters, from the schoolgirl tormented by a jealous ex-boyfriend to an elderly couple harbouring a painful secret.
The screening of Better Things will be in Cinema 3 at 17:50 after which the Q&A will take place in Watershed 3.
