The Silver Darlings

Part of the Folk Film Gathering Season


A rare opportunity to see the 1947 adaption of Neil Gunn’s Scots literary classic on the big screen in 35mm. Chronicling the hardships experienced by Highland communities in the wake of the clearances, The Silver Darlings explores the life and loves of Catrine and her family, and and their changing fortunes as they are forced into the brutal herring fishing industry. A powerful tale of struggle and dispossession.

Introduced with live traditional music from Rona Wilkie and Marit Fält.
