Event description

Description

Join Invisible Dust and ATLAS Arts for FREE special film screening and open discussion over local food in Corry Lodge – one of Skye’s oldest homes overlooking Broadford Bay.

A screening of two new artist films shot in Wester Ross and the Firth of Clyde by Margaret Salmon and Ed Webb-Ingall exploring our relationship to the sea. Followed by a light communal meal of locally sourced food and open discussion with filmmaker Margaret Salmon.

Shore: How We See the Sea is an arts and marine science project touring Scotland with the aim of reflecting Scotland's coastal communities’ responses to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). After touring to Arran, Barra, North Uist, Gairloch and Ullapool, this event is an opportunity to share thoughts and reactions as part of a Scotland-wide conversation about “how we see the sea” and the role of MPAs in preserving or ‘shoring up’ our endangered aquatic worlds.

ATLAS Arts is an award-winning, pioneering producer and commissioner of contemporary art that creates connections between artists and audiences and responds to the unique qualities of this region, its landscape, its culture and its people. Through their work ATLAS provides opportunities for artists to develop ambitious, often temporary, durational work in the public realm.

Note about event parking: There is limited parking available at the Lodge gates. Recommend parking in Broadford with a beautiful 10-minute shore walk to Corry Lodge.


THE FILMS

Directed by award-winning director Margaret Salmon and shot on 35mm, Cladach is an observational portrait of a place, the shoreline of the Wester Ross MPA, and the community bordering it in Ullapool. Following the shoreline as a point of meeting between worlds, Salmon seeks to connect nature and society mirroring the coastal town activities with underwater footage and lyrical sound recordings from above and below the water.

I walk there every day but never saw it that way, directed by Ed Webb-Ingall is a ‘Fogo process’ inspired community film that seeks to understand the role and impact of Marine Protected Areas for those people who live near them and work with them. With the participation of Arran residents and Campbeltown fishermen, the film draws out conversations and asks questions across and between different communities and individuals, to understand the various and complex relationships that exist. It asks ‘Who does the sea belong to?‘, ‘How do you use the sea?’ and ‘How do you protect the sea?’.
