As restrictions eased The Village Storytelling Centre invited families in Pollok to share stories and experiences of welcoming a baby during the pandemic. Feelings of isolation and anxiety are explored in this film, as well as unexpected positives, and the joy of seeing the youngest members of our community join together for the first time in their lives.
Connecting Stories will also be screened as part of a workshop considering the benefits of Storytelling in the Early Years in a Post Lockdown World (Thursday 7th July, 10.30am at the CCA).
Sarah Rankin and Daiva Ivanauskaitė: Storytellers
Andy Gunn: Film maker
And the families who welcomed babies during the pandemic
Connecting Stories is free and will be released to access on the festival website during the festival week. 
Film Length: 20 mins
