Scheme Birds

A compelling chronicle of teen life in a dead-end Scottish housing project (a "scheme"), Ellen Fiske and Ellinor Hallin’s debut documentary pulls no punches as it introduces us to the magnetic Gemma, a pregnant teen raised by her grandfather after her parents abandoned her at birth, who butts up against poverty and a no-hope future with headstrong resilience. "Extraordinary… Weighs the bleak details… against moments of lyrical beauty and even humour. It’s a remarkable achievement." - Screen
