Scheme Birds

Wed 25 September @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- £4.50 – £10.50

In the Motherwell housing estate where she grew up, teenager Gemma says scheme birds like her either get “locked up or knocked up,” so perhaps her path is set. As Gemma’s life twists unexpectedly, the film follows her and the people in her life. Lyrical yet unflinching in its gaze, this heartbreakingly tender documentary asks what causes a person to change—and whether it’s ever too late to do so.

“Soars in a quietly magnificent manner” – The Skinny

BEYOND THE SCREEN
We are delighted to be welcoming one of the film’s producers, Ruth Reid, in conversation after the film.

Presented in association with Moving Docs.
