‘Briseadh na Cloiche’

Glasgow Short Film Festival - CCA Glasgow

Friday 17 March 2017

 

Briseadh Na Cloiche(The Breaking of the Stone)

Gaelic language / subtitled. 20 minutes.

Tickets available here.

In association with Glasgow Short Film Festival  we present our first film production – a project funded jointly by MG ALBA and Creative Scotland. ‘Briseadh na Cloiche’, John Murray’s landmark Gaelic short story has been reinterpreted for stage and screen by playwright Iain Macrae and director Duncan MacDonald. Macrae and Mairi Morrison convey the progression of a post war romance to its harrowing conclusion with a dynamic blend of drama, dance and mime while percussionist Alex Neilson provides an inventive, interactive soundtrack.

The evening will begin with a screening of ‘Away With The Land’ a beautifully shot 13 minute documentary focusing on the life of Isle of Harris crofter Donald John Macinnes.

Our premiere screening will be followed by a Q & A session hosted by Gaelic broadcaster Derek Mackay in the company of TV and Film director Duncan MacDonald, screen-writer, theatre director and actor Iain Macrae and actor and singer Mairi Morrison.

Guests are invited to join us for a complimentary drink at the CCA Cinema at 8pm.
