Glasgow Film Festival
A Mother Brings Her Son to Be Shot CANCELLED

Thu 1 March 2018

Due to the adverse weather conditions, and on the advice of the travel and emergency services, CCA will close at 2:30pm today - Unfortunately, this means the cancellation of all Glasgow Film Festival screenings for the remainder of today.

It is 20 years since the Good Friday Agreement signalled the end of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, but what does it take for a war to really end? Hatred doesn’t disappear. Paramilitary groups don’t just disband. Filmed over five years, Sinéad O’Shea’s uncompromising documentary examines the legacy of conflict and violence in the country. Her focus is the O’Donnell family, and the story of a Derry mother who made her drug-addicted teenage son face his punishment at the hands of dissident Republican paramilitaries. A fascinating, disturbing film that couldn’t be more timely.

Also screening Fri 2 Mar, 8.45pm
