Sound From the Edge of the World

  • Annita Nitsaidou

Inspired by EIFF’s retrospective The Big Score, a celebration of musical innovation in cinema, emerging curators have joined forces with sound specialists to create a vibrant audiovisual event where newly composed sound will give a fresh perspective to archive film. Weaving a rich collage of archive footage of the landscape, traditions and rhythms of the Orkney islands – from spectacular Neolithic monuments and famous Ba’ festival to daily activity on land and at sea – and accompanied by an experimental live score, this vivid exploration of island life will present a powerful celebration of Scottish culture and heritage.
