Everything is New is a 70-minute magical feature film starring the children of the Light of Love Children’s Home.
Irvine Welsh is the film’s Executive Producer and Narrator.
The film sets out to create an empowering new fable for the children of the Light of Love Children’s home, where children defy adults and prevailing orthodoxies to bring change and renewal to a dying society.
Mark Cousins has described the film as ‘an inspiring movie about the turning of the earth and the play of children. It tells a mythic story of togetherness, peril and hope. It is a valuable film and a memorable one’.
