An ex-prisoner returns to his Highland home and endeavours to start his life anewThe Frontline Club and the Scottish Documentary Institute are teaming up to present New Scottish Documentary, a series showcasing some of the the boldest and most innovative new works produced in Scotland. Featuring one screening per week, they’ll be celebrating the richness of Scottish nonfiction filmmaking, including discussions with veteran documentary-makers and up-and-coming directors to watch.
Uisdean wants forgiveness. After 16 years in prison, he has returned home to nurse his ageing father in a small village in the Scottish Highlands. But Uisdean also needs to rebuild his life. With the isolation of the Highland landscape both a blessing and curse, he begins the hard graft of reinventing himself. What follows is as much a struggle with tradition and Highland identity as it is with the weight of his own past.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Lou McLoughlan.
Running time: 1 hour 20 minutes. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
