A film, partially shot on Skye and featuring a local musician, will be installed at Dunvegan Castle.
The film, entitled Eglantine, is described as a beautiful, meditative and enchanting account of a young girl's adventure in a remote forest.
New York filmmaker, Margaret Salmon, lives and works in Glasgow, creating filmic portraits that weave together poetry and ethnography. Featuring local musician, Kirsten Macbeth, the film produces a lyrical and sensual portrait of a child's eye perspective on the natural world.
Whilst the film is installed at Dunvegan Castle, ATLAS Arts will be offering a series of accompanying events. This includes a preview event on the 18 May when Margaret Salmon will be in-conversation with Janet Ullman from The Forest School and ATLAS Director Emma Nicolson. The evening will include a screening of the film, a performance by musician Kristen Macbeth, and a drink and canapé reception in the dining room at Dunvegan Castle.
ATLAS is also working with groups from Portree High School, Portree Primary School, Dunvegan Youth Club and Young Carers on a series of workshops exploring the themes of the film.
