International Shorts 1: Strings Attached

  • 89 mins

An affecting journey through the tapestry of relations connecting people.

A man on a quest to fulfil his dying mother’s last wish; a young girl’s chance encounter with a stranger; two long-lost cousins’ trip to the Scottish Highlands; and a glimpse into the domestic life of a Romanian family stirred by the arrival of an injured bird. This selection of international short films explores the many ways in which the often unspoken connections we develop with other human beings can shape, shake up or simply quietly accompany our lives.
