Part of the Folk Film Gathering Season
Join us for an evening celebrating the films of one of Scotland’s most distinctive filmmakers, Gerda Stevenson.
The Storm Watchers
(Gerda Stevenson; Scotland; 2021; 40 min; 12A; English)
An Ìobairt / The Sacrifice
(Gerda Stevenson; Scotland, 1996; 25 min; 12A; Gaelic with English subtitles)
In An Ìobairt, dormant echoes of the past within the Scottish landscape re- emerge to haunt the present, whilst The Storm Watchers (an innovative adaptation of George Mackay Brown’s play, shot during lockdown) presents the voices and perspectives of a series of women waiting upon the shore for their seafaring husbands to return.
The films will be introduced with a mini-concert of songs Margaret Bennett (who herself features in An Ìobairt) and will be followed by a Q&A with Gerda Stevenson.
Presented with the kind support of Bòrd na Gàidhlig.
