Screened at Brora Ice House pop-up cinema
Sea Songs is a sonic and visual exploration of superstitions in the Highlands of Scotland. The film is divided into conceptual chapters: each recreates a surreal local superstition. It features the playful voices of local school children, who create a symbolic bridge between the present and these symbols of the past. We first screened this film inside a pop-up cinema for the local community, using a disused ice house in a harbour in Brora, Sutherland.
