Mental Health Focus: Haydee and the Flying Fish
Haydee has been seeking justice for victims of human rights violations for 40 years, but today she faces her most intimate battle, the end of a long trial that condemns her torturers, the murderers of the son she carried in her womb. Along the way, health problems will bring back memories of her darkest days.
The film will be followed by a discussion on the representation of trauma in cinema. Participants include Dr Leshu Torchin from University of St Andrews Department of Film Studies , Fiona Crombie of Freedom from Torture / Freedom from Torture – Glasgow group, and Dr Alison Hauenstein Swan and Dr Kirsten Atherton from the Glasgow Psychological Trauma Service.
This screening will be captioned for D/deaf and Hard of Hearing audiences and the post-film discussion will be BSL interpreted.
