  The Closer We Get on DVD and VOD [read more]
  Family matters
  SOMEWHERE is excited to announce the DVD & digital VOD release of HOT DOC’s International Documentary winner THE CLOSER WE GET. THE CLOSER WE GET will be available to buy on VOD digital download from 31st August and DVD 5th September 2016.

THE CLOSER WE GET was HOT DOC’s International Documentary winner and has also gone on to win the Women Filmmakers Award from Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival and also Best UK Feature from the Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival.

Directed by Karen Guthrie and Produced by Karen Guthrie and Nina Pope, THE CLOSER WE GET is a powerful and exquisitely-shot autobiographical portrait of loyalty, broken dreams and redemption told by its director, reluctantly-dutiful daughter Karen, who takes you under the skin of the household she returns to for this long goodbye.

Karen's mother Ann suffers a devastating stroke that brings her daughter back home when she least expects it. But Karen isn't the only one who returns to help care for Ann in the crisis: Her prodigal father, the unfathomable but endearing Ian - separated from Ann for years - also reappears. Armed with her camera, Karen seizes this last chance to confront the family story before it's too late, to come to terms with the aftermath of the secret her father had tried - and failed - to keep from them all, and to find that Ann's stroke has in fact thrown them all a life raft.
