Made entirely of Scottish film archive footage, is a 75-minute film by award-winning director Virginia Heath, featuring a transcendent score by Scottish musician and composer King Creosote. A journey into Scotland's collective past, the film explores universal themes of love, loss, resistance, migration, work and play. Ordinary people, some long since dead, their names and identities largely forgotten, appear shimmering from the depth of the vaults to take a starring role.
The film is now available for international festival screenings and UK theatrical bookings.
