The Silver Darlings (Clarence Elder  |  UK  |  1947  |  PG)

A rare opportunity to see the 1947 adaption of Neil Gunn’s Scots literary classic on the big screen in 16mm. Chronicling the hardships experienced by Highland communities in the wake of the clearances, ‘The Silver Darlings’ explores the life and loves of Catrine and her family and their changing fortunes as they are forced into the brutal herring fishing industry. A powerful tale of struggle and dispossession.

This screening was introduced with live traditional music from Rona Wilkie and Marit Falt.
