Light Waves

Sunday 17 October 2021


See history lit up like never before! As part of Scotland's Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21, we are delighted to present a very special online event.

We are lighting up Scotland with a one of a kind short film in Scots, English and Gaelic, set against the backdrop of iconic historic locations and featuring dramatic projections it will showcase the heritage and traditions of Scotland’s coasts and waters.

The multilingual short film, produced by Double Take Projections, will be accompanied by a specially commissioned soundtrack by the Scottish band Niteworks and poetic narration by three Scottish poets. Starting with some gentle reflections from Colin Bramwell as he looks back at our connections to our heritage, through some firey Gaelic poetry from Peter Mackay who delves into the world of the myth and legend, the crescendo comes from Roseanne Watt who explores themes relating to our position and responsibility in looking after our coasts and waters in Shetlandic Scots.

You will be able to watch the pre-recorded short film on Facebook and YouTube.

There is no need to book and the film is free to watch.
