Connect - Film Screening + Q&A

About Connect - Film Screening + Q&A

CONNECT is the directorial debut of Marilyn Edmond and follows the story of Brian (Kevin Guthrie), a young man battling with his mental heath. Outwardly, he keeps calm, goes to work and carries on. He never feels that it's possible to share his feelings, until care home owner Jeff (Stephen McCole) becomes a source of support. A flirtation with single mother Sam (Siobhan Reilly) could be a reason to choose life. Moments of optimism clash with dark despair in a strikingly filmed tale shot in North Berwick. Suicide among young men is a major issue in the UK today. Connect is an ambitious attempt to confront the issue in a heartfelt drama.

CONNECT is a new feature film which addresses the taboo subject of male mental health.

Despite the dark subject matter this an uplifting love story starring Kevin Guthrie (Sunshine on Leith) and Stephen McCole (Outlaw King).

Please note, the screening will be followed by a Q&A with Director Marilyn Edmond.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Connect - Film Screening + Q&A are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
