WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Director of “That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore” visit the port city all the way from Scotland to attend this year’s Cucalorus Festival.

Hannah Currie is from Glasgow with a background in journalism and production. This is her second film.

The film is about her uncle who lives with the effects of a brain injury. He can’t remember much, but he does remember jokes and continuously tells the same ones. This has caused him and his wife to become isolated.

The film won a BAFTA Scotland award earlier this month.
