Event Details

The first cinema documentary entirely in Scottish Gaelic, 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.

Lingo Flamingo are a not-for profit organisation based in Glasgow who utilise language learning as a therapeutic platform for older adults living with dementia in care homes and day centres across Scotland. This screening hopes to celebrate Gaelic culture and heritage, in light of the recent addition of Gaelic to our care home classes. The screening is completely free and all are welcome.
