London Cinema Premiere
Emily Wardill’s Fulll Firearms
Thursday 26 April 2012
Written and directed by award-winning artist and filmmaker Emily Wardill, Fulll Firearms presents the story of Imelda, a woman haunted by the victims of the guns sold by her father’s company. Imelda uses her inheritance to build a house for the ghosts to inhabit. When squatters move in, she is convinced these are the ghosts who have been haunting her. Conveying themes of displacement and storytelling, Wardill’s film examines conditions of precariousness in society and how these affect people’s relationships with each other.
