DIRECTOR: LOU MCLOUGHLAN

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

“I felt challenged to make this film when Uisdean first said to me, “My father’s very ill. Will you film me on home-leave so I have footage of us together? You should show that not all prisoners are monsters”, recalls Lou. “Early on in the filming, I thought the film would be more about Calum than Uisdean, that it would be a story about the unconditional love between a father and son. However, as Uisdean’s journey into Audrey’s life began a second love story, what developed was a film that examined something bigger: at what point in a relationship must love, as an act of faith, pause to question itself? And it was that questioning – in response to Uisdean’s initial challenge to me – that felt most “monstrous” to those who had to do it.
