Resulting from a series of summer workshops, The Little Things was produced by Borders-based young people in association with Alchemy Film & Arts to highlight the characteristics of domestic abuse and the work of Border Women’s Aid. The young people interpret testimonies from Border Women’s Aid service users to create an impactful and educational short film.

This project is part of Film Town, Alchemy Film & Arts’ community-engaged creative learning programme.
