Late Afternoon introduces Emily, an elderly woman with dementia who vividly relives her memories. 

Sitting comfortably in her armchair Emily (Fionnula Flanagan) takes a cup of tea and a biscuit when a simple mishap triggers a pleasant journey into the past. She swims through the memories of being a child on a beach, a young woman in a lover’s embrace  and a young mother concerned for her little girl.

Writer/director Louise Bagnall’s Academy Award nominated film was inspired by her own two grandmothers and is a poignant celebration of ordinary lives.
