Brodick one day line-up announced

Girl Walk All Day

A look back at Brodick’s past and a US dance extravaganza are just two of the highlights of our third one day film festival, coming to Arran on Saturday 27 July.

Hit US dance film, Girl Walk // All Day; rare archive footage shot in Brodick between 1927 and 2012; Greenland-set documentary Village at the End of the World; and the hugely entertaining Irish drama, Good Vibrations, will be shown at the one day event, with ticket prices ranging from £3 to £5.

Girl Walk // All Day is feature-length dance music video and a tale of urban exploration that follows three dancers across New York City as they turn the city’s sidewalks, parks and architecture into an evolving stage. Tickets £3.

Celebrate almost 90 years of Brodick on film at 2pm. We start with footage of holidays in Brodick in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, as locals and tourists enjoy the sea, bay and sights of Brodick through the years. This silent footage will be accompanied by a new live score by acclaimed Arran musician, Lynsey Tait.

Then, 1960’s The Way the Money Goes tells the story of the travelling bank in the Hebrides and West Highlands through the eyes of an English tourist.

Things take a musical turn thanks to some rare film of Scottish musical legends, The Alexander Brothers. Jack and Tom sing traditional and modern Scottish songs around Brodick in this footage from the STV archives, circa 1967. Finally, 2012’s Birds in Cages sees pupils from Arran High School in a short film set in Brodick Castle. Tickets £3.

Then, at 5.30, we head to Greenland with Village at the End of the World, a fascinating new documentary which looks at rural life in a small village for teenager, Lars. He’s not interested in being a hunter like his family and friends, but how can he escape to something better? Tickets £5.

Finally, we end the day with the hilarious and heartfelt Good Vibrations, a fictionalised look at the world of Belfast’s godfather of punk, Terri Hooley, who opened the city’s Good Vibration record store, discovered The Undertones and inspired a generation. Tickets £5.
