Film: 16 Years Til Summer
Description: Uisdean wants forgiveness. After 16 years in prison, he’s released to the Highlands to pursue his crofting dreams whilst fulfilling an obligation to care for his father. But it takes an extraordinary love story to elude growing accusations against him in a film that drifts seamlessly between two portraits of the same man, as carer and convicted murderer. 16 Years Till Summer tells a very human story of euphoric hope set against documented tragedy in a film about what gets sacrificed when people need to see the best in each other. Filmed over four years, compelling storytelling and cinematic imagery blur the line between the fairy-tale of the heart and the rational judgement of society ; of magic realism and documented tragedy. A story of redemption, interrupted, in the Highlands of Scotland.
David Strang, HM Chief Inspector of Prisons in Scotland will chair a question and answer session with the film Director, Lou Loughlhan, after the film screening.
