A year in the life of a Deeside farm in the 1950s and beating a Highland retreat…
Deeside Community Centre, Bridgeview Road, Aboyne AB34 5JN // Tickets now available in person from the venue // Ticket Info
Made on Our Land: Aboyne is a screening of rare films from the archives exploring the rural lives and landscapes of Scotland and Deeside, followed by a panel discussion – or ‘blether’ – about the films being screened and the roots of our strong tradition of rural cinemagoing.
As well as national films including a post-war plea to dissuade Highlanders from emigrating to the cities, the programme features the beautiful full colour films of a local mother-daughter filmmaking team documenting farm life in the landscape surrounding Aboyne and along the Dee.
On tour from the Outer Hebrides to the Scottish Borders, Made on Our Land is part of the BFI Britain on Film project: making thousands of newly digitised film and TV titles from archives across the UK available to view online. Join curator Shona Thomson as she unearths some celluloid gems from the National Library of Scotland Moving Image Archive. Event duration: 90 mins approx.
