Glasgow Film Festival
A Portrait of Robert Alan Jamieson

CCA

Sat 22 February 2014

Novelist and poet, Robert Alan Jamieson grew up in the crofting community of Sandness, Shetland. This film is based on his a collection of poems Nort Atlantik Drift, described by Jamieson as originally intended ‘for my three sons, a record of who their father might be and who he once thought he
might be. But as with life, the narrative developed in ways I didn’t foresee’. The same could be said of the film as less than a week before filming began his father died at the age of eighty-four – as with life, the narrative of the film developed in ways Alan could not have foreseen.

Robert Alan Jamieson will attend the screening to perform a poem and participate in a Q&A chaired by Mary Blance of Shetland For Wirds.

Screening as part of Nort Atlantik Drift: A Day of Shetland.
