Ill Fares The Land (Bill Bryden | Scotland | 1983 | PG)
Bill Bryden | Scotland | 1983 | PG
A rare chance to see Bill Bryden’s poetic portrait of the last days of life upon St Kilda. ‘Ill Fares the Land’ sensitively charts the daily lives of the last five families remaining on the island – through funerals, weddings and rites of passage – as they edge closer to the decision that will change their lives forever.
This screening was introduced with traditional Scots/Scandinavian folk songs from Rona Wilkie and Marit Falt.
