James Morrison (1932-2020) was one of Scotland’s most gifted painters. Anthony Baxter (Flint), filmed James over the last two years of his life as he struggled with failing eyesight and poor health. The result is a fond, affectionate portrait of the man and his legacy that glories in the scope of a career that includes vivid portraits of Glasgow life, the thunderous moods of Scotland’s seas and skies, Paris in winter and his Arctic work. A film that reflects the personality and talent of Morrison with lovely animation from Catriona Black and a plaintive soundtrack from Karine Polwart.

This screening includes a Q&A with Director Anthony Baxter and Animator Catriona Black.

World Premiere. Thanks to Journeyman Pictures
