In the second of our occasional series of fund raising events for Bella at the Glad Café in Glasgow, we invite you to join us for a celebration of the onset of winter and the imminence of Oidhche Shamhna/ Hallowe’en.
We’ll be showing the acclaimed short film Second Sight/An Dà Shealladh, there will be poetry and performance from Em Strang and Kate Tough, and author and activist Alastair McIntosh will discuss the significance of Second Sight in indigenous cultures. This will be followed by a ceilidh with some songs, stories and maybe even some dancing to help us mark the thinning of the boundary between worlds.
An Dà Shealladh/Second Sight is a poetic documentary, collecting together the stories from a group of community elders from across the country – including Sheila Stewart, Norman MacLean and Margaret Bennett – and placing their testament in counterpoint to a richly evocative Scottish Landscape.
This is a fund-raising event for Bella Caledonia. All welcome.
