Tea + Cake
Directed by Kirsty Robinson
Director Kirsty Robinson with conduct Q&A with the audience via SKYPE after the screening.
Writer/director Kirsty Robinson started writing Tea and Cake when she was 14-years-old, to show “other girls who were bullied, self-conscious, and struggling” they aren’t as alone as they feel. During the 14 years it took her to finish the film, she learned that women of every age face similar issues. So her script expanded to include four generations of women in a small town in England: a lonely teenager and her ambitious older sister, their unhappily married mother, and their desperate grandmother. Gaining strength from friends and family, each tries to overcome the unexpected obstacles life hurls at them.
