'The Closer we Get' will be screened at London's Somerset House on 8th February as part of the Unorthodocs programme of documentary screenings and events, which asks why so many award-winning documentaries never make it onto British TV.
A daughter returns to her ill mother’s home to care for her. Her father unexpectedly returns to stand by their side.
Encompassing years of familial archives and more recent footage shot after her mother’s devastating stroke, Guthrie manages to bring to life an extraordinarily powerful portrait of her family.
While engaging with deeply intimate issues, the film’s emotional resonance is universal.
Guthrie’s previous works cover a large range of topics relating to modern British culture. Nina Pope is her long-time collaborator, and has co-produced The Closer We Get.
