KINGDOM OF US
by Lucy Cohen
For over two years, director Lucy Cohen filmed a mother and her seven children – six young women and a young man – whose father killed himself, leaving them in financial ruin. Incorporating archive footage of the family and evocatively capturing the West Midlands landscape around them, Kingdom of Us is a record of the siblings’ emotional recovery as they piece together their broken past and reflect on their fears and aspirations for the future.
