Hamish

PG
Hamish Henderson (1919-2002) was a colossal figure in Scottish culture, a man of boundless passion and curiosity whose poems continue to elevate and inspire a nation. Robbie Fraser’s highly acclaimed feature length documentary describes the many contrary forces and diverse facets of Henderson’s life as a poet, soldier, intellectual, activist, songwriter and leading force in the revival of Scottish folk music. From an English orphanage and the draughty corridors of Cambridge, to overseeing the capitulation of the Italian army in WWII and penning the most celebrated Scottish ballad in contemporary folk music, ‘Freedom Come Aa Ye’, this is Henderson’s life as told by those who knew him best and loved him most. An emotional and intimate musical portrait of one of modern Scotland’s most important figures. The film has been funded by MG ALBA and Creative Scotland..
