A friend of the TMF wrote this review after attending the much-anticipated premier. “Brave” opens in Scotland on 3rd August, and goes on general release in the UK on 13th August. It features some of Scotland’s finest traditional musicians and Alex Salmond says it will give a massive boost to the Scottish tourist industry, but what do you think of it? Tell us in the comments section below and let’s get some debate!
By David Francis,
We are social animals, and of course we need to get along better, be mindful of our rights and those of others (‘once you have rights what are the life possibilities?’ asks the Scottish poet, Kenneth White), keep working on the crisis of our political arrangements, and improving our living conditions through social policy. But if our vision is of a renewed human culture that allows for an expanded sense of being, and a new sense of our relationship with our earth, and if we think it important to re-think, re-ground and re-express the relationship between the human mind and the non-human world, then we have to look for resources.
