Directed by Bill Douglas

A pioneer of Scottish independent cinema, Bill Douglas left behind a small but miraculous body of work, the centerpiece of which is this remarkable trio of short films about the experiences of a restless boy (played by the same actor over the course of six years) searching for escape from the harsh realities of life in a Highlands mining town. Shot in lyrical black and white and graced with images of ineffable loveliness, these miniature masterpieces transform the filmmaker’s own painful memories into hopeful, transcendent art.
