11/04/2014: Everybody’s Child Hamburg Premiere

The Hamburg premiere of Everybody’s Child is taking place this Saturday 12th of April at this year’s  Dokumentarfilmwoche.

There is a Q&A with Garry Fraser after the screening.

The Festival takes place in four Hamburg cinemas 3001-Kino, Metropolis, B-Movie and Lichtmeß.  The Festival is a platform for films dealing with important human, social and political issues and many of the films selected are unlikely to be shown in mainstream television or cinema in Hamburg!

‘Everybody’s Child’ is a documentary in which recovering heroin addict and film director from Muirhouse, Garry Fraser, takes his audience to the heart of his community to try to understand why things went so wrong for him. He managed to overcome his addiction through filmmaking.

This project was possible thanks to the support of our great team and friends and finances from Creative Scotland and BBC Scotland.

22/02/2014: Everybody’s Child Scottish premiere sells out

We had a wonderful  sold-out Scottish premiere at the GFT tonight. The screening was followed by a Q&A with the Director Garry Fraser and Producer Aimara Reques, hosted by film critic Eddie Harrison.  Many thanks to our great audience for coming along and we are terribly sorry for those that couldn’t get tickets.

Our film is part of the Great Scots strand which  “supports your local film heroes as we present the best new productions from Scottish filmmakers and Scottish production companies”

It has been a great honour for us to join the GLASGOW FILM FESTIVAL‘s 10-year anniversary  celebrations.

11/02/2014: ’15 in Gaza’ broadcast today

We are very pleased that our film, ’15 in Gaza’ is showing on Al Jazeera English today, Tuesday 11th February at 0330 GMT and tomorrow Wednesday 12th February at 1630 GMT as part of the Witness series.
Directed by Wesam Mousa and Rana Ayoub, the film is an intimate story revealing an insight into the life of a young girl, Shurooq Mousa in Deir El-Balah, near Gaza City as she prepares for her 15th birthday.  In her community this means womanhood, being ready for marriage, wearing the abaya and no more playing with friends in the street.  Shorouq is an intelligent, creative girl who can be rebellious and is not ready to face womanhood as war rages around her.  It is a touching human story that puts us in touch with the meaning of ‘adulthood’ and the paradoxes associated with it.
Special thanks to
Shurooq Mousa, Mai Mazeed and families and the people of Gaza.
Thanks to our great team:
Wesam Mousa, Rana Ayoub, Su Bainbridge, Aimara Reques, Frank Smith, Lee Archer, Rich Farnsworth, Samy Zyara, John Cobban, Ian Ballantyne, Jenny Lancaster and Jackie Scott
Also to: Ahmed Ajour, Mahir Hayatley, Libby McInnes, Hannah Rudman, Gabriel Smith-Reques, Richard Findlay and Lorna Hutcheon.
Our special thanks also to Al Jazeera for making this film possible
