A friend and fellow classmate of mine, Lucy Kaya is one of the writers of ‘Trouble Sleeping’, a feature which was presented at this year’s Edinburgh International Film Festival. It’s now due to be screened on BBC 2 Scotland on 25th August at 10pm – hurrah! Set in Edinburgh, it’s based on the real-life stories of asylum seekers, and is about a group of refugees doing what they need to do, just to survive. Directed by Robert Rae, and produced by Eddie Dick – it’s the first feature from Edinburgh’s Theatre Workshop – a company which collaborates with community groups, and addresses the issues that affect them. It was also awarded a BAFTA Scotland New Talent Award 2008 for best new work – fiction…..
Watch it if you can!
