We recently added The Arbor to the DBRL collection. The film played at the 2011 True False Film Fest and currently has a rating of 95% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
Andrea Dunbar was an unflinchingly honest playwright who wrote about her distressing upbringing on the Arbor, the notorious Buttershaw Estate in Bradford, U.K. She died tragically in 1990 at the age of 29. This documentary follows her children as they begin to understand the struggles their mother faced. This film comprises personal letters, interviews with Andrea’s family and friends, and a reading of her most celebrated play.
