Where You’re Meant to Be – Special Screening
17th September 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Cultpop raconteur Aidan Moffat sets out to explore Scotland’s past by rewriting and touring its oldest songs. But he doesn’t count on running into 79 year old force of nature Sheila
Stewart – a travelling balladeer who upturns Moffat’s folk assumptions. He believes the old songs are ripe for updating. She does not.
With Stewart’s wrath ringing in his ears, Moffat embarks on a road trip that finds him dressed for battle in a Highland graveyard, caught between feuding monsterhunters at Loch Ness, and singing in a dismissive farmer’s kitchen – before facing Stewart in his hometown of Glasgow for an unlikely final showdown, in this funny wee film about music and death.
“Fun, affectionate & foul mouthed” Total Film ★★★★
“Wit runs through it in a sly and natural flow. Capricious temperaments, reconciliations and ravishing rain on the Glens. A satirical folk comedy, and touching as hell. You must see it.”
Antonia Quirke, The Film Programme, BBC Radio 4
“An infectiously entertaining, lyrical folk odyssey that reveals something unexpectedly profound about culture, language and storytelling.” Little White Lies
