The Films of Gerda Stevenson

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.
