Faroe Islands - The Connected Nation

, Start Time: 13:00 The Stables Cromarty,

2018   30mins + discussion + 12min Greenpeace film

Director:  Lesley Riddoch and Al McMaster
Guest:  Lesley Riddoch

Please note - change of venue! This film was originally advertised as showing in the Old Buoy Store but is now in the larger Stables venue.

One of the Nation trilogy of films made by Lesley Riddoch exploring the very different path our Nordic neighbours have followed from that of the UK. How have these places overcome the immense challenges of remoteness and relatively barren landscapes to achieve independence, or in the case of the Faroes, the world's most powerfully devolved parliament?

We also have a bonus screening of Shutdown, documenting Greenpeace's daring occupation of a Transocean rig off the shore of Cromarty this summer. A timely discussion with Lesley on both films will follow.
