World Premiere

Ken Smith has spent the past four decades living in a log cabin nestled near Loch Treig, known as 'the lonely loch', not too far from Fort William. He has no electricity or running water. He lives off the land, fishing for his supper, chopping wood, and even brewing his own tipple. Director Lizzie MacKenzie has known Ken since 2012 and filmed him through changing seasons and challenging health problems. Her warm, captivating documentary, now presented in a feature-length version, fondly celebrates a man in the wilderness and records the friendship that has grown between them.

The screening on Saturday 5 March will be followed by a Q&A with Lizzie MacKenzie, hosted by Rachel Caplan from Keep Scotland Beautiful.

This film is also screening online via Glasgow Film At Home.
