Irene's Ghost (PG)

Director Iain Cunningham. British Documentary.


A feature length documentary about director Iain Cunningham's personal search to find out about his mother, Irene, who died when he was just 3 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 friends, Cunningham carefully pieces together fragments of the past to movingly build 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.

Starring David Arthur, Iain Cunningham.
