A special commission by Glasgow Short Film Festival for the 60th anniversary of a lost archive film that never was. In 1956 a Glasgow-based socialist filmmaking collective embarked on an ambitious project confronting Scotland’s rural de-population crisis. Lost Treasure is a beautifully atmospheric audio-visual performance responding to the abandoned film: assembled by filmmaker Minttu Mäntynen and accompanied live by musicians Drew Wright (aka Wounded Knee) and Hamish Brown (Swimmer One).
