  • Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go

    2007. Great Britain. Directed by Kim Longinotto. A look inside Oxfordshire’s Mulberry Bush School, founded by psychologist Barbara Dockar-Drysdale to care for children suffering through severe emotional trauma. “Longinotto spent a year filming these children, who are prone to sudden, violent outbursts, and their teachers, who display enormous restraint and sensitivity. The children’s problems are real, deep, and stubborn—but the long arc of recovery is clear, with hope for these troubled children just over the horizon. ... [Longinotto] and her steady, unobtrusive camera capture an intimate and unforgettable tale of the human capacity to hurt and to heal” (Jason Silverman, True/False Film Festival). 100 min.
