23rd October 2017
Following a fantastic week at the first ever Central Scotland Documentary Festival, we are rounding off the week with Stirling Kaleidoscope - a live cinema event featuring archive films of the area. Stirling’s key role in Scottish history is mirrored in the national film collections and how Scotland has projected itself on the world’s screens over the years.
Curated by Shona Thomson, who presented Made in My Toun at Macrobert Arts Centre in 2015, this event brings together a new selection of films of the Stirling area, hand-picked from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive. From 1930s cinema adverts to TV documentaries full of social commentary, familiar sights are reflected and refracted through a fascinating array of perspectives.
With thanks to the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive.
There will be an introduction and commentary from Shona Thomson, creative producer and curator at A Kind of Seeing. She will be joined by Scottish filmmaker Mark Littlewood and the National Library of Scotland's Moving Image and Sound Collections Manager, Ruth Washbrook for a post-screening discussion.
