Gallivant (1997)

Film details


The artist-turned filmmaker director, his 85 year-old grandmother and seven year-old daughter, Eden, who suffers from Jouberts syndrome and can only "talk" through sign language, journey around the coastline of Britain and into each other's worlds. They have adventures, meet strange characters and explore fishing villages on their journey. They develop a dialogue amongst the eccentrics and "normal" people who populate the coastal regions, while the director provides insights into the various generations of his family.
