The WI would like to invite members to join them for a special screening of the true-life drama, Let Me Go, on 10th August at Denman. The exclusive screening will be followed by a Q&A with the Director and Writer of the film Polly Steele and Producer Lizzie Pickering.
Starring Juliet Stevenson, Jodhi May, Lucy Boynton and Karin Bertling, Let Me Go is based on the true-life story of Helga Schneider who was abandoned by her mother in 1941 when she was only four years old. The film is set in the year 2000, following not only Helga and her mother’s journeys but the next two generations’ and how they suffer from the trauma created over 70 years ago.
Let Me Go is a film about mothers and daughters, about trans-generational family relationships, about ghosts from the past and the impact they leave on the present. It is a film about letting go of your past wounds and acknowledging how many generations it takes before the scars of trauma start to heal.
Let Me Go is released in selected UK cinemas and digital download on 15th September by Evolutionary Films.
