Made by the Sea: Brodick

As part of the ‘Shore: How We See the Sea’ launch day, join award-winning curator Shona Thomson from A Kind of Seeing for a fascinating big screen presentation of life on Scotland’s coasts and seas with a unique selection of archive films held in the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive, including a taste of Arran island life from the 1950s. From the bird life of St Kilda to the incredible power of a rising tide for brave lifeboat crews and coastal communities alike, the sea has an important part to play in our national moving image collection. After presenting films from as early as 1908, Shona will lead an informal audience blether about the films and our complex relationship with the sea.

All seating is unreserved. If there is a particular area of the auditorium that you like to sit in, then please arrive in good time.
