The event has passed.

The acclaimed ‘Why not Scotland’ Film comes to the Glenkens – 6th June @ 7.30pm

Struck by the depleted state of nature in her native Scotland, Flo journeys around Europe, where she encounters a different story, finding places where nature is making a dramatic comeback. Inspired by a sense of hope and renewal, she is prompted to ask: if this is possible elsewhere, then why not Scotland?
The latest feature-length documentary from ‘Scotland: The Big Picture’ has been touring the country in recent months and is coming to the CatStrand on 6th June at 7.30pm.

As we stand at a vital crossroads in the future of our land and seas, ‘Why Not Scotland?’ explores the Scottish landscape through the eyes of Flo, a young Scot from Glasgow. Seeing the depleted state of nature across her own country, Flo feels dispirited and, like many of her generation, increasingly fearful about an uncertain future. However, on a journey around Europe, Flo encounters a different story, finding places where nature is making a dramatic comeback, revitalising human communities.

The film is 60 minutes long, starting at 7.30pm. A trailer can be seen here:
