EIFF is pleased to welcome Charlotte Wells, Paul Mescal and Frankie Corio to Edinburgh this Summer to present Aftersun.
In her stunning feature debut, Scottish director Charlotte Wells explores the very formative period of a child’s life when they realise their parents are people of their own. Grainy images are turned into time travel machines as Sophie (Frankie Corio) revisits sun-kissed memories of a summer holiday taken with her dad (Paul Mescal). Anchored by her two terrific lead performers, Wells offers up a perfectly nuanced observation of father and daughter as they undertake two contrasting yet intertwined journeys of self-discovery in this absolute miracle of a film.
