Join us for a film screening of 'Irene's Ghost', a feature length documentary about director Iain Cunningham's personal search to find out about the mother he never knew, Irene, who died when he was just three years old.

Decades after Irene's death and inspired by the birth of his own daughter, Cunningham sets out to discover who Irene was, leading him down a winding path of long-lost relatives and contradictory tales. Through the stories told by Irene’s old friends, Cunningham carefully pieces together fragments of the past to movingly rebuild a lost life.

The culmination of his search leads him to discover that Irene suffered from postpartum psychosis, a severe form of mental illness that occurs after having a baby. What began as a meditation on memory and identity, becomes a study of family, female friendship, and the importance of the connections we make and keep.
