Simon Miller | Britain | 2007 | PG
One of the first films to be made in the Gaelic language, ‘Seachd’ stars celebrated figures within Scotland’s Gaelic community in a tale about the passing down of stories from one generation to another. When Angus’ parents are killed trying to climb Skye’s Inaccessable Pinnacle, he is brought up by his grandfather, amongst the magical stories of the Gaidhealtachd: of the water horse, buried gold, of poisoned lovers. When his grandfather falls ill, Angus must confront what is just a story, and what is true.
This screening featured a special mini-concert from celebrated folk musician Rachel Newton.
