(Jamie Chambers, 2013, Scotland)

Featuring luminaries of the Scottish folk revival Norman Maclean, Sheila Stewart and Margaret Bennett, this lyrical cinematic fable explores the passing of songs from one generation to another. Ruadhan is an angry young man all too aware of changes in his community: there’s no more fish in the sea, the ceilidh house is shutting down, and the town is besieged by middle-class incomers’ intent on gentrification. Ruadhan stages a one man-stand: can he halt the unstoppable and save the soul of his community? Preceded by a live performance from folk-singer Margaret Bennett. Followed by an audience with celebrated, reclusive Gaelic personality Norman Maclean.
