"The Arbor" (Fiction-Non Series)
Fiction-Non
(A documentary series exploring 'hybrid films' that cross the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction traditions.)
Curated by Beyza Boyacioglu


Friday, January 11th, 7:30pm
The Arbor
Dir. Clio Barnard, 2010, 94 min.
The Arbor tells the powerful true story of Bradford playwright Andrea Dunbar ("The Arbor," "Rita, Sue and Bob Too") and her daughter Lorraine. Andrea Dunbar died tragically at the age of 29 in 1990, leaving ten year old Lorraine with bitter childhood memories. The Arbor catches up with Lorraine in the present day, also aged 29, ostracised from her mother's family and in prison undergoing rehab. Re-introduced to her mother's plays and letters, the film follows Lorraine's personal journey as she reflects on her own life and begins to understand the struggles her mother faced. Through interviews with other members of the Dunbar family, we see a contrasting view of Andrea, in particular from Lorraine's younger sister Lisa, who idolises Andrea to this day.

Director Clio Barnard recorded audio interviews with Lorraine Dunbar, other members of the Dunbar family and residents from the Buttershaw Estate over a period of two years. These interviews were edited to form an audio 'screenplay,' which forms the basis of the film as actors lip-synch to the voices of the interviewees. This footage was intercut with extensive archive clips as well as extracts from Andrea's first stage play, "The Arbor," filmed as a live outdoor performance on the Buttershaw Estate, to an audience of its residents.
Post-screening speakers and panel discussions to be announced.

Fiction-Non is also an online blog that features blurred genre literature.
