Iorram (Boat Song) is the first feature documentary entirely in Scottish Gaelic, and is a haunting evocation of life among the fishing community of the Outer Hebrides. Director Alastair Cole (Colours of the Alphabet) has created a lyrical fusion of sound and vision, using a treasure trove of newly restored oral history recordings. Poetic images of the present are set to the everyday conversations, tales and cherished legends preserved from past generations. A score by award-winning folk musician Aidan O’Rourke unites the elements into a moving reflection on island identity then and now.

This screening includes a Q&A with Director Alastair Cole and Producer Adam Dawtrey.

World Premiere. Thanks to Tongue Tied Films, Bofa Productions
