Directory of World Cinema Scotland


Scotland, its people and its history have long been a source of considerable fascination and inspiration for film-makers, film scholars and film audiences worldwide. A significant number of critically acclaimed films made in the last twenty-five years have ignited passionate conversations and debates about Scottish national cinema. Its historical, industrial and cultural complexities and contradictions have made it all the more a focus of attention and interest for both popular audiences and scholarly critics.Directory of World Cinema: Scotland provides an introduction to many of Scottish cinema's most important and influential themes and issues, films and film-makers, while adding to the ongoing discussion concerning how to make sense of Scotland's cinematic traditions and contributions. Chapters on film-makers range from Murray Grigor to Ken Loach, and Gaelic film-making, radical and engaged cinema, production, finance and documentary are just a few of the topics explored. Film reviews range from popular box office hits such as Braveheart and Trainspotting to lesser known but equally engaging independent and lower budget productions such as Shell and Orphans. This book is both a stimulating and accessible resource for a wide range of readers interested in Scottish film.
