To celebrate World Gaelic Week, Screen Argyll are hosting an online discussion on Iorram (Boat Song) on 22nd March 2022 at 7.30pm. The panel – including Gaelic singer Gillebride MacMillan, musicians Tara Rankin and Ian Smith, and filmmaker Alasdair Satchel – will discuss the film, Gaelic culture and the future of the language in Scotland. The discussion will be in Gaelic, with simultaneous translation into English provided by CHARTS.
Iorram (Boat Song) is the first cinema documentary entirely in Scottish Gaelic and 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. Iorram is available to rent on our Stream Argyll platform, and is available in Gaelic with English subtitles, in Gaelic with Gaelic subtitles, in Gaelic without subtitles, and with a Gaelic Audio Description.
