Part of the Folk Film Gathering Season
A powerful invocation of the Gaelic oral tradition, and one of the first films to be made in the Gaelic language, Seachd stars celebrated figures within Scotland’s Gaelic community – Angus Peter Campbell, Dolina McLennan and Padruig Morrison – in a tale about the passing down of stories and spirituality from one generation to another. When Angus’s parents are killed trying to climb Skye’s Inaccessable Pinnacle, he is brought up by his grandfather, amongst the magical stories of the Gàidhealtachd: of the water horse, buried gold, of poisoned lovers. When his grandfather falls ill, Angus must confront what is just a story, and what is true.
This screening will feature a special mini-concert from celebrated folk musician Rachel Newton.
