The Silences

Documentary sees director Margot Nash investigate her family history - from her difficult relationship with her mother to a mentally unstable father.

"A haunting and deeply moving attempt to exhume the unspoken secrets and tragedies of [Nash's] own childhood. Torn between a father whose mental illness defined every aspect of daily life and a mother whose crippling depression she didn't discover until she began making The Silences, Nash offers a raw first-person account of growing up in an age when the shame of mental illness meant that such matters were never discussed, even with one's own family."
