Join Bertha DocHouse for a screening of the documentary Your Mum And Dad.

As Larkin said, your Mum and Dad have a lot to answer for.

After 17 years of documenting one man’s struggle to heal from a generational wound, Klaartje Quirijns turns the camera on herself to reveal her own family’s devastating trauma.

Using a wealth of home movies and archival images, as well as taped therapy sessions, Your Mum and Dad explores recurring behavioural themes and raises individual cases into a universal pattern of experience. Underpinning this fascinating film, Kirkland Vaughans – one the few African-American Freudian therapists in the United States – guides us through the complex workings of the mind, showing how easily we can be “colonised” by the behaviour of our parents.

Director Klaartje Quirijns will join us for a live Q&A following the screening of Your Mum and Dad, hosted by Sandra Hebron, psychotherapist and Head of Screen Arts at the National Film and Television School.
