Please note that the second screening of Mallory has been cancelled.

One of Helena Třeštíková’s extraordinary, long-form character studies, Mallory follows a struggling mother over thirteen years as she makes a desperate bid to leave her old life behind and build a better future for her son. Long troubled with drug addiction and homelessness, Mallory is an inspiring story of a determined recovery in hopelessly difficult circumstances as Czech society provides little support for her struggles. She also strives to bring hope to others by helping those she knows best, people on the fringes of society.

Screening as part of a season of films by Helena Třeštíková who will be in Leeds for a Q&A with Forman vs Forman:
