Glasgow Film Festival presents Voyageuse and Super November at the Lighthouse Cinema on Tuesday 23 October.
Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival and Glasgow Film Festival collaborated during the GFF 2018 festival, presenting a season of Irish films and we are delighted to collaborate again with an evening of new Scottish Filmmaking Talent this Autumn. Join us for two special screenings followed by Q&As with both directors.
The new feature from director May Miles Thomas (The Devil’s Plantation) is inspired by her late mother-in-law Erica Thomas. Erica died in 2004 and her legacy included a vast collection of photos, films, documents and objects, revealing aspects of her story that were previously unknown to her children. Voyageuse is an ingeniously constructed biography of a woman born in Hungary in 1933, whose life reflected the trauma of key world events in the 20th century. Siân Phillips gives voice to a beautifully written script dramatising one woman’s ordinary life, lived through extraordinary times.

Pushing a micro-budget to its limits, Super November is a hugely ambitious mixture of mumblecore romantic comedy and Orwellian dystopia. Clydebank librarian Josie (Josie Long) is all loved up and has found her soulmate in the equally besotted Mikey (Sean Biggerstaff). Six months later, the bubble has burst and things are very different, as the country has plunged into a political crisis, there is civil unrest on the streets and normality is a distant memory. Welcome to the harsh, fast changing landscape of the real world.
Director Douglas King Cast Josie Long, Sean Biggerstaff, Darren Osborne
