Screen­ings of film­poem

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

A unique‘film­poem’aired out­side by can­dle­light, is set to be screened at RSPB Scot­land Loch Lomond for one night only later this month.

The Essence of Place, which was filmed on the site near Gar­tocharn be­tween De­cem­ber and Au­gust, is the creation of Su­san­nah Ram­say, the artist in res­i­dence.

The short film is part of Su­san­nah’s prac­tice­based PhD re­search for the Uni­ver­sity of Stir­ling and Glas­gow School of Art, and presents the land­scape and wildlife of Loch Lomond through­out the chang­ing sea­sons.

It ex­plores the mean­ing of place as a way to con­nect with mem­o­ries, and looks at the en­dur­ing re­la­tion­ship be­tween peo­ple and na­ture.

Su­san­nah said:“I was fa­mil­iar with the land­scapes of the Loch Lomond area prior to this res­i­dency, but I was drawn specif­i­cally to the RSPB re­serve as it pro­vided me with such a wide va­ri­ety of wildlife to cap­ture on film. I was par­tic­u­larly in­ter­ested in see­ing and record­ing the rare Green­land white­fronted geese that spend their win­ters at the site.

“Through the film­poem, I wanted to try and har­ness what be­ing in the land­scape meant in terms of con­tem­pla­tion and why there is an urge in many of us to re­turn to cer­tain places that prompt mem­o­ries and thought.

The Essence of Place will be screened on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 21, in time slots be­tween 7.15pm and 9pm. Tick­ets cost £10, or £8 for RSPB mem­bers; book­ing is es­sen­tial. Park­ing at Ross Pri­ory with trans­fer by minibus. Those with mo­bil­ity is­sues con­tact emma.mar­tinelli@rspb. org.uk. Visit Eventbrite. co.uk and search for RSPB Loch Lomond.
