Made on Our Land – Lost Treasure at Lochinver

PG
Join curator Shona Thomson for a special archive film screening with live music in partnership with Glasgow Short Film Festival (GSFF) as part of a Scotland-wide tour looking at the rural lives, landscapes and culture of Scotland on the big screen: Made on Our Land. For the prestigious opening night event in March this year, GSFF commissioned a new audio-visual re-working for the 60th anniversary of a lost archive film the majority of which was shot in Assynt. In 1956, a socialist filmmaking collective embarked on an ambitious project documenting rural depopulation in Caithness and Sutherland which was never completed. LOST TREASURE is a beautifully atmospheric performance responding to the abandoned film: assembled by filmmaker Minttu Muntynen and accompanied live by renowned musicians Drew Wright (Wounded Knee) and Hamish Brown (Swimmer One). The screening will be followed by an informal blether with the performers about the land use issues raised in the film still pertinent today. On tour across Scotland, Made on Our Land (http://www.madeonourland.com) is part of the BFI Britain on Film project, making thousands of newly digitised film and TV titles from archives across the UK available to view online: www.bfi.org.uk/britain-on-film..
