THE chance to ask film writer/director Tim Barrow all about his independent film ‘The Space Between’ is on offer tomorrow night (Thursday, February 16) at An Lanntair.

The arts centre is set to show the film, which has already completed 43 screenings throughout Scotland, written and directed by Barrow, producer of award-winning Scottish road movie ‘The Inheritance’.

The story follows Lisa who spends her days numb, isolated, and alone in a comfortless flat in Edinburgh.

Her only respite is brought by working at the observatory, bringing her close to the stars.

Then enter Steven, who loses everything in London and so heads for the sanctuary of the Scottish capital he grew up in.

Their tale goes from darkness and loss to light and hope as the film follow the two strangers, brought together and given the chance to turn their lives around.

The third character of the movie could be considered Edinburgh and its creatives, with artist Halla Groves-Raines providing extensive artwork for the character of Lisa; and soundtrack provided by city music makers, including Fiona Rutherfod and Freemoore.

‘The Space Between’ will be shown at An Lanntair at 8pm, and will be followed by a Q&A session with Barrow.
