(Drama) Looking down the barrel of the lens, a dysfunctional family pieces together an event that has irrevocably altered their relationships. A complex exploration of parental responsibility and consent, this film contains descriptions of a sexual encounter that some may find distressing (Ireland/UK. 70 mins).
A unique debut feature, from a script by Joseph Crilly, Stumbling consists of direct-to-camera interviews with five characters, speaking as if for a documentary. Every frame and sound was captured over three days at the former UTV studio facility in Belfast, with a crew of four, on a budget of only £10,000. Stumbling is a carbon positive production.
