Shore: How We See the Sea + Q&A with filmmakers

A repeat screening of two new films by Scottish-based filmmakers Margaret Salmon and Ed Webb-Ingall exploring the Marine Protected Areas around Arran and Wester Ross: Directed by award-winning director Margaret Salmon and shot on 35mm, ‘Cladach’ is an observational portrait of a place, the shoreline of the Wester Ross Marine Protected Area, and the community bordering it in Ullapool. Town life and activities filmed provide an entrance into the rhythm of the local, and a space to allow different attitudes and ideas around coastal life to emerge. Following the shoreline as a point of meeting between worlds, Salmon seeks to connect nature and society mirroring the coastal town activities with underwater footage and lyrical sound recordings from above and below the water. ‘I walk there every day but never saw it that way’, directed by Ed Webb-Ingall is a ‘Fogo process’ inspired community film that seeks to understand the role and impact of Marine Protected Areas for those people who live near them and work with them. With the participation of Arran residents, the film draws out conversations and asks questions across and between different communities and individuals, to understand the various and complex relationships that exist. It asks ‘Who does the sea belong to?‘, ‘How do you use the sea?’ and ‘How do you protect the sea?’. After the film, join both filmmakers along with representatives from Shore project partners the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and LUX Scotland for a question and answer session around the films and the subjects they explore. Curated by Invisible Dust and funded by Creative Scotland and the Wellcome Trust, Shore: How We See the Sea is a touring multi-arts and science project reflecting Scotland’s coastal communities’ responses to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). This launch day in Brodick takes place in partnership with COAST (Community of Arran Seabed Trust). Tour website: Cost: £5 adults, £3 concs.
