Iona is a place of escape for director Scott Graham, who returns with his second independent film following critical acclaim with debut, Shell. Ruth Negga takes the lead as Iona who, following an act of violence on the Scottish mainland, escapes back to the remote Scottish isle with her teenage son Bull. Seeking refuge among the community of Christians that raised her, slowly Iona is reconnected with the devout way of life she once turned her back on.
All tickets £5. After the screening there will be a post film discussion with Yasmin Sulaiman, Editor at The List.
The cinema has a hearing loop system and infrared sound facility. Contact the Duty Manager to reserve a headset. Subject to availability.
