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.

From Scotland with Love will be screened at the 19th Chicago European Union Film Festival on Saturday 19 March and Friday 25 March. The Chicago European Union Film Festival is the largest showcase in North America for cinema from European Union nations.

Professor Virginia Heath is a Professor of Film in the Art and Design Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University.
