‘From Scotland with Love’ – Professor Virginia Heath’s BAFTA-nominated documentary film screening with Q&A at Phosphorescence Festival of Dance – Saturday 16 October 2021
“From Scotland With Love, Virginia Heath’s hypnotic archive film with transcendent musical score by Scottish composer King Creosote, offers a cinematic reflection on 20th century human experience.
We’re delighted to have Virginia join us for a post-screening Q&A to talk about the process of making the film; telling stories through gesture and movement and how the film celebrates a sense of community.
Conceived and created over the length of a year for Glasgow Commonwealth Games, the film was BAFTA Scotland Nominated 2014 for Best Feature Documentary”.
Made entirely of Scottish film archive, From Scotland With Love is a 75-minute film by award-winning Director and Sheffield Hallam University Professor of Film Virginia Heath with a transcendent score by Scottish musician and composer King Creosote.
A journey into our collective past, the film explores universal themes of love, loss, resistance, migration, work and play. Ordinary people, some long since dead, their names and identities largely forgotten, appear shimmering from the depth of the vaults to take a starring role.
