We are very excited to be hosting the first ‘Folk Film Gathering On Tour’ as part of Side’s 40th birthday celebrations during May and June. Having participated every year in its programme at the Filmhouse in Edinburgh, Amber/Side are happy to be bringing a selection of the films to the region: Land of Songs, Laulu, The Brave Don’t Cry & Blackbird.
The season revolves around a dual theme of Songs and Labour, showcasing the many instances where filmmakers have explored the complex ties between communities, music & labour. Given recent world events, the 2017 programme also voices political solidarity with those experiencing new degrees of vulnerability.
Thursday 15th May Land of Songs 7.30pm
Thursday 25 May Laulu 7.30pm
Thursday 1st June The Brave Don’t Cry 7.30pm
Thursday 8th June Blackbird 7.30pm
