Talking with Angels

Category: Short Film & Music Promos


Directed by Yousaf Ali Khan

10-year-old Alan and his family make their way to the clinic for Mum’s regular Largactil injection ( intended to subdue her ‘schizophrenic’ voices).

Alan takes upon himself the responsibility for holding his family together. He negotiates the two worlds his family inhabit: his mother’s vivid inner world occupied by demons and angels, and the stark reality of everyday life haunted by poverty and the ever-present threat of the social services splitting up his family.
