Interview: Deborah Haywood talks ‘Pin Cushion’

by Stuart Wright

In his latest interview/podcast, host Stuart Wright talks with Deborah Haywood about her debut feature films Pin Cushion, which received its London Premiere on Sunday 22 April as part of the East End Film Festival and was followed by an extended panel discussion about Female Filmmakers in partnership with Underwire Festival.

Lyn (Joanna Scanlan) and her daughter Iona (rising star Lily Newmark) arrive in town looking for a fresh start, but as Iona longs for a life beyond the confines of their home, the eccentric fantasy world they’ve built for themselves starts to crumble. Casting a keen eye on the complex relationships between women, this deliciously dark and utterly distinctive British debut infuses its dreamlike, fairytale quality with shards of something much sharper and more troubling.
