South West Picture Show presents: Duthchas (Home) (U) + Director Q&A

Fresh from Edinburgh International Film Festival, Dùthchas | Home is a poignant, touching and emotive exploration of what it meant – and still means – to people, especially women, to have to leave the island of their birth to get an education, work, and live. It explores the effect this had on the Gaelic language and culture of the island. This film features previously unseen Kodachrome 8mm archive film of everyday life on the Isle of Berneray in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland through the 60s and 70s. A specially composed soundtrack by Donald Shaw draws on the rich tradition of traditional Gaelic songs and their compelling melodies as its inspiration.

Join us afterwards for a Q&A with directors Andy Mackinnon and Kirsty MacDonald.
