Irene died before Iain was old enough to form memories of her. The layers of silence surrounding her death were so tightly bound that it has taken him decades to broach the topic with his father. As Cunningham encounters long-lost relatives and Irene’s best friend, Lynn, he gets to know his mother through the stories they tell: life in Nuneaton in the 1970s; factory work and living for nights at the Co-op Hall and holidays. Like putting pieces of a puzzle together, Irene’s personality comes to life.

Bursts of animation illuminate memory and fantasy in this moving portrait of mental illness, grief, and female friendship. Screening during Mental Health Awareness Week, Irene’s Ghost reflects on the world of memories you create, along with the ones you leave behind.

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with director Iain Cunningham, hosted by filmmaker Michael Baig-Clifford.
