Day of the Flowers Edinburgh Film Festival

Directed by John Roberts, and starring Eva Birthistle, Carlos Acosta and Charity Wakefield, 'Day of the Flowers' tells the story of two young, strong-willed Scottish sisters, one a left-wing activist, the other a most popular-girl-in-school type, take their late father's ashes to Cuba, the site of many family legends of his service to the Revolution. Arriving in Havana, the two women promptly lose the ashes and go through a series of misadventures - both romantic and dangerous - to try to retrieve them. A colourful and wryly humourous tale of cross-cultural misunderstandings and lost illusions.

In competition for the award is: Berberian Sound Studio - Peter Strickland Flying Blind - Katarzyna Klimkiewicz Future My Love - Maja Borg The Imposter - Bart Layton Life Just Is - Alex Barrett One Mile Away - Penny Woolcock Pusher - Luis Prieto Shadow Dancer - James Marsh Small Creatures - Martin Wallace
