The unDependence Film Festival has been showing Scottish and international short films that ask questions about relationships between individuals and society for 5 years in a row.

The Festival is going to celebrate its 5th anniversary’s Closing Night with 2 screening programmes and a presentation at Summerhall’s Red Lecture Theatre.

The night will begin with a screening of short films, The Edges of the Family Album, showing international short films on family stories that would not likely produce a snapshot for the photo album.

There will also be a screening of the result of the Dockma 48-hr film challenge followed by the grand-finale: the internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning feaure documentary COMPLICIT by Lynn Zhang & Heather White. A film shot below the radar for three years in China in the midst of an unprecedented human rights crackdown, the film is a character-driven, inspiring tale of young activists facing huge odds in their effort to reform China’s toxic smartphone factories.
