Professor Virginia Heath’s BAFTA-nominated film, From Scotland With Love, is screening with live performance of the score by King Creosote at Edinburgh’s Usher Hall on Saturday 07 March 2020, almost 5 years after it was performed to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2015.

“Even without the use of a TV, mobile phone and the internet, I am all but overwhelmed by the ongoing chaotic upheaval that is 2019, and alas there looks to be little reprieve come 2020 … so what better a tonic than to revisit the daily lives of our grand, great grand, and great great grandparents’ generation as they go about their work and play.

With a 9 piece band, King Creosote returns to perform a fully live rendition of the soundtrack to Virginia Heath’s critically acclaimed From Scotland With Love film that’s chock-full of archive footage and un-fussy melodic songs for what appear to have been happy, healthier times!”

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.
