From Scotland with Love – Screens in Rip It Up Season


Made entirely of archive film, From Scotland With Love is a feature by award-winning director Virginia Heath with a transcendent score by Scottish musician and composer King Creosote. A journey into our collective past, the film explores universal themes of love, loss, resistance, migration, work and play.

Ordinary people, their names and identities largely forgotten, appear shimmering from the depth of the vaults to take a starring role. Brilliantly edited together, they become composite characters, who emerge to tell us their stories, given voice by the poetic music and lyrics.

Rip It Up: The Story of Scottish Pop is at the National Museum of Scotland until Sunday 25 November. Visit RipItUp for more information.
