Monday 24 May – Sunday 30 May
Screen Argyll, North East Arts Touring and Driftwood Cinema proudly present the screening of IORRAM, the first cinema documentary entirely in Scottish Gaelic.
To celebrate the survival of the language we are also presenting a panel discussion bringing together native and new speakers of Scottish Gaelic of the Highlands and Islands and Galwegian Gaelic from the lowlands. The panel will discuss the languages and dialects of Scotland and the reflection of Gaelic Culture in the music and connection to the landscape and the sea that is depicted in IORRAM.
Iorram (Boat Song) is a lyrical portrait of the fishing community in Scotland’s Outer Hebrides. Director Alastair Cole takes a cinematic journey into the past and present of the islands, mixing voices, stories and songs from the mid-20th century with images of life today on land and sea, and original music by Aidan O’Rourke.
The film will be available to view on demand anytime from Monday 24th May to Sunday 30th May.
The Panel Q&A will be broadcast live via Zoom on Thursday 27th May at 7:30pm and will then be available to view on catch-up via Indy On-Demand until Sunday 30th May. Details of the Zoom panel will be provided to ticket purchasers on the day by Indy On-Demand.
