Referendum afternoon of coffee, tea, cakes, videos, information and inspiration...

Poster for Aye, Have a Dream

 

Scotland Yet is a feature length documentary that takes a radically different approach to the debate on Scottish independence.

Blissfully free of sound bites, politicians and statistics, Scotland Yet examines the sum of several personal stories from across the nation to explore the many reasons why we find ourselves at such an historic impasse.

Filled with remarkable characters and sparkling with collective imagination, vision and humour, this is the story of a society that’s beginning to see itself in a whole new light. From the old to the young, from veteran activists to bold artists, Scotland Yet delves into the past, documents the present and asks poignant questions about Scotland’s future.

This films focuses on the real referendum debate, the one taking place in the streets, homes and communities across Scotland. It documents the most important discussion we have ever had, as democracy, place, what we have here and what we lack, come to the fore.

A coming of age story about a whole society: Scotland Yet is a unique and radical cinematic journey about a country that will never be the same again.”

This year the Highland Spiritual Cinema are showing a film every month here at The Little Theatre.

For July they have “Tsotsi”, written by Athol Fugard and directed by Gavin Hood.

Highland Spiritual Cinema - Tsotsi

Set in Soweto, ‘Tsotsi’ is a film of deep emotional power, raw and heartfelt, portraying six days in the life of a young Johannesburg gang leader whose cold eyes show no emotion, who kills unthinkingly, and who is transformed by the helplessness of a baby. Despite the violence and ostensibly edgy nature of the subject matter, this is a positive movie with a message of redemption.

“Mallory - Beyond Everest” - 26th Jun 2014

Was George Malory the first man to climb Everest? It’s 90 years since he and Andrew Irvine vanished into the mist on their final push toward the unconquered summit of Everest. They were never seen alive again and passed into mountaineering legend. Whether they were the first to climb the mountain, thirty years before Hilary, is a debate that still rages. What if Mallory had survived the mountain, what ghosts would have haunted him?

John Burns has brought Mallory back to life in a unique one-man play that combines physical theatre, film footage from the first Everest expeditions, especially composed music in a stunning production that is engaging, funny and moving.
