Talking with AngelsCategory: 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.
