Made on Our Land: Brodick
Friday 22 July, 2pm
Screen Machine, Car Park, Auchrannie Hotel, Isle of Arran, KA27 8BZ
Made on Our Land: Brodick is a screening of rare films from the archives exploring the rural lives and landscapes of Scotland and Arran, followed by a panel discussion – or ‘blether’ – about the films being screened and the roots of our strong tradition of rural cinemagoing.
As well as national films including Scotland’s efficient land use during the Second World War, Brodick’s identity as a thriving holiday destination ‘doon the watter’ is represented through poignant family films of both holidaymakers and locals from as early as the 1930s. The screening will be followed by an informal blether with special guests connected to the films. Event duration: 90 mins approx.
