From Glasgow, With Love is really about the people of Glasgow and the refugees they welcome to their city- in some ways we wanted to make a film of a positive mindset that was an antidote to the toxicity of the medias portrayal of asylum seekers & the dehumanization of refugees in general- hopefully you, the viewer, can feel the love & hope in this little film
