Scotch Reels: Scotland in Cinema and Television

£50.00

Product description

Scotland and the Scots have been appearing on the cinema screen since the turn of the century, and Scotland has had its own distinctive cinematic institutions since the 1930s. Yet to date these activities has never become a focus for debate. This book is an attempt to map the field of Scottish film culture. The essays contained in it cover topics such as the influence of Tartanry and Kailyard on Scottish culture generally, the image of Scotland in mainstream cinema, the efforts by the Workers' Film Society and others to pose an alternative to these traditions, and the inadequacies of Scottish television. In addition there is a photo-essay on some of the visual motifs which dominate the screen image of Scotland, and a long interview with Forsyth Hardy, who has been a major influence on Scottish film culture for half a century.

Lovingly sourced from our donations and listed online by our team of volunteers.
